Time-saving RKO Tool (US Pat. 9,174,269, EU Pat. #2905092)
This new patent expands coverage already provided by United States patent (US 9,174,269 B2). The RKO tool, or Ramsey Knock Out Tool®, is designed to quickly and easily remove pins wherever a chain must be disconnected. The same tool can also be used to easily install chain connecting pins wherever chain sections are to be joined. The RKO tool also maintains chain link and spacer alignment and can save hours when connecting or disconnecting multiple chain sections.
The tool is especially beneficial on the plant floor, where it allows chain to be easily installed, repaired or replaced. Tools are equipped with modular guide plates that allow the tool to be adapted to almost any Ramsey Silent Chain® width, as well as wear protected chain styles like Allguard FX™ and Lifeguard®.
