Adjustable flat tension lever

Ganter GN 126


During the development of the adjustable GN 126 clamping lever, special attention was paid to the ergonomics of the lever and timeless, elegant design. Since they are preferably used when the pivoting range limited or a certain clamping position of the lever is desired, space has been limited.

The screw insert is connected via a serration with the handle disengaged. By lifting the lever hub, the serration is released and the clamping lever can be pivoted to a favorable clamping position. When "releasing" the clamping lever engages again automatically. This functionality was particularly taken into account in the design.

Adjustable flat tension lever

The basic idea of the flat tension lever GN 126 for Otto Ganter GmbH, was to design a tension lever that is easy to use and conveys a high-quality design. In the brainstorming phase, we have played through many situations such as in which position or how this lever can be used. To verify the ergonomics, we developed various prototypes. This gave us a better picture of the ergonomics and design.

The design of the handle is precise and soft at the same time. During the design process, our focus was, to make it as simple as possible and very functional at the same time. Thereby the complexity in the application field will be optically reduced; as a result, the simple handle becomes an eye-catcher.

By the space-saving design, it is most helpful to use it in limited pivoting areas. Also, the tension position of the lever can be adjusted if desired. The self-explanatory design allows the user to understand the functions without any problems or misunderstandings.
