The FORMUS System lock is an internal connector with a hammerbolt, that simply retracts
when an allen key is turned clockwise. This mechanism provides secure and strong connection
between the different extrusions used.
The pictures abouve show, how easy the connector works:
1) Bring the hammer lock of the connector into a vertical position
and place it
in the groove at the desired position / height.
2) Turn the extrusion 90 degrees upward or downward, so that
connector is in a horizontal position.
3) Use an allen key to fix the crossbeam into position.
The crossbeam with its connectors can be placed and removed freely between two
fixed posts, without removing them. It is not necessary to slide in the connector
all the way from the top or bottom of the post / groove. This allows fast set-up
or alteration without dismantling other parts of the existing construction.
