Weschtools Announces Large Grapple Auto Body Pulling Clamp

WeschTools Large Grapple Auto Body Pulling Clamp

The clamp is designed to pull depressed body panel surfaces to their original contour with minimal surface disruption.

WeschtoolsWeschTools announced that the WeschTools Large Grapple will be introduced at the 2016 SEMA Show in Las Vegas and will be available for delivery Feb. 1st. Years ago, repairing dented auto body panels was accomplished by using specialty hammers and simple tools. In this day and age, auto bodies are made from space-age composite materials, lightweight steel and aluminum panels. Making repairs efficiently and geometrically correct requires the use of specialized tools and advanced techniques. Since almost all automobile body repairs are funded by insurance companies, the work must not only be performed at a high standard to be accepted, it also must be done in a cost-effective manner for the shop to remain profitable. This is where the Large Grapple gives the body shop an opportunity to reach these goals. Specifically, the clamp is designed to pull depressed body panel surfaces to their original contour with minimal surface disruption. Simply drill a 3/4-inch diameter hole at the desired location, insert and expand the three prongs of the clamp, and pull until the panel is in its original shape. As with all WeschTool items, the clamp is constructed of high-tensile strength cast steel to provide long years of service even when stressed with pulling forces exceeding 8,000 lbs. With a weight of only 8.5 lbs., the clamp is easy to use, handle and store. In addition, it has a durable powder coat finish, and all of the hardware is grade 8 or stronger. The Large Grapple is the first in a series of purpose-built, patented clamps designed and produced by WeschTools. At the moment, the companion clamps include an offset wheelhouse clamp, a curved clamp, a small grapple and a double bar clamp. For more information, visit www.weschtools.com.
