    CLECO, Wedgelock, KiwkLock Surplus

    Hello,

    I have thousands of CLECOs in difference sizes and types, spring tension, cylindrical, wing nut and hex nut. Does any one know of any companies or individuals that would be interested in large quantities. They are surplus and most look like they've been used but they are all in great shape. I am not looking for anywhere near retail for them.

    I’m interested too. You might think of how you could put together a package in a flat rate usps box and let us know your price.

    Re: CLECO, Wedgelock, KiwkLock Surplus

    Anyone want to give a quick education on the various types and why one would use one or the other?

    Re: CLECO, Wedgelock, KiwkLock Surplus

    Alright here is what I got, Sorry for the delayed reponses.

    These were all part of a military surplus lot we got, I have been going thorugh and sorting them, the Wing-Lock say "Wing-Lock" and the Cilidnrical ones say "Wedgelock". Some are used and some are new some of the used ones look like they had the inventory number? removed from them.

    If you are local to Indianapolis you can pick up but otherwise I'd be glad to cover the cost of a small flat rate box on any order over 40 bucks. You can pay via Square or Amazon.

    There are thousands of them so if you are looking for a significant ammount I'd be happy to discuss a voulme discount 100+ pieces of wing lock or cylindircal or 500+ pieces of the spring plier opp.

    Would be happy to send you a picture of the acutal ones you'd get so you can decide if you ok with the conditon (they all look good) I've been throwing all the bent ones in a bucket.

    Spring/Piler Operated - 100 pieces .45 cent each, 500 pieces .35 cents each 1000 pieces .25 each

    Wing Nut - 1.75 Each shipped

    Cylindrical & T Wing - 2.25 each shipped

    The spring type (pliers applied) are primarliy alignment holders when a predrilled skin sheet is applied to framework to be riveted in place. Inserting a Cleco into a hole holds the sheet in place until rivets can be driven between clecos. Think of them as a removable reusable pop rivet.

    The nut type are used to pull a skin sheet tight to the frame when a formed sheet doesn't want to lay tight to the framework. The action is similar to a C clamp, but the force exertable is far short of what can be done with clamps. They can also severely screw up a hole when used improperly trying to get more pull out of the cleco than it was designed to provide.

    Everybody should have at least 20 to loose and misuse.

    “CLECO” is a generic name for these temporary fasteners. Originally developed by Cleveland Pneumatic Tool Company, hence the contraction to “CLECO”. Wedgelock and KwickLock are other trade names from different manufacturers.

    Be advised! Your gonna need a pair of Cleco pliers to make these work. The hex nut style can either be set with wrenches or a specialized nut runner gun. The nut runners get expensive so hand wrenching is the preferred method unles your building an experimental space shuttle in your carport.

    Another word of caution. DO NOT weld close to CLECOs as the spring inside will lose temper and destroy the cleco. DNAMHIKT. We’ve all done it. No free tee shirt for this trick.
