  • Bolt Hinged Rocks
  • BR Vertical
  • BR Pulltey
  • Hinge Pins

The Flexco® Bolt Hinged Fastening System is ideal for belt conveyor applications subject to length adjustments because the joint can be separated easily by removing the hinge pin. A combination of penetration and compression delivers strength and reliability to belts operating over smaller pulleys.

Why Bolt Hinged?

  • Mechanical fastener rating from 190 to 300 PIW (33-52 kN/m)
  • Belts from 1/4” to 5/8” (6 mm to 16 mm) thick
  • Pulley diameters from 6” to 9” (150 mm to 225 mm)
  • Hinged fastener with easy-to-install nuts and bolts
  • Easy joint separation with pin removal
  • Perfect for applications with belts operating over small pulleys
  • Specially formed teeth penetrate belt carcass for added strength without damaging fibers
  • Piloted bolts for quick and easy installation
  • Curved templet aids in accurate placement of bolt holes and uniform tension across the full belt end

Installation Method

  • Portable tooling
  • Choice of hand or power installation

How Flexco® Bolt Hinged Fasteners Work 

Bolt HInged

Flexco® Bolt Hinged fasteners provide a flexible joint for belts operating over small pulleys. Because the joint is easily separated by simply removing the hinge pin, entire belt sections may be added or eliminated. Designed as a compression fastener, the Flexco® Bolt Hinged model is fastened to the belt ends with high strength bolts. The bolts compress the plates into the belt cover.

Additional holding capability is provided by the fastener teeth that imbed in the belt without damage to the belt carcass. This combination distributes the splice tension across the entire plate width while the teeth secure the fastener into the belt carcass to resist pull-out.
