Gator Grip Lock with Cylindrical Housing

from Fillauer LLC

The new stepless lock uses a one-of-a-kind smooth flexible plunger that can address plunger alignment issues by flexing to find the distal opening. Another option for the Gator Grip, the smooth rigid plunger, is designed with an initial “safety click” to alert the wearer that they are engaged. Both plungers offer stepless action and corrosion resistance. The lock is designed to eliminate backlash and can be disengaged under load. As an added benefit the locking cartridge may be removed from the socket without detaching the release button for easy maintenance and cleaning.

The prosthetic lock can be used in fresh or salt water, muck, or grime. When fabricating, a distal outlet is needed to allow dirt and water to wash through its corrosion-resistant frame. Amputees can now enjoy activities in any environment without fear of causing harm to their locking device.

The modular Gator Grip Lock mechanism is interchangeable between the three housings. We challenge you to use the Gator Grip on your most active patient who cannot use standard attachment devices.
