What to keep in mind when Ordering Lockrods
- Lockrods can be ordered with or without mounting components.
- One rod guide is usually used per lockrod. If additional rod guides are required, you must specify that. Order two half bushings for each additional rod guide ordered. Keepers are ordered separately.
- Keepers are available in several mounting options, finishes, materials and offsets. Please talk to our Powerbrace Customer Service or see the respective chart under each model.
- Standard mounting components usually used with each 1″ lockrod (same finish as the ordered lockrods) are as follows:
2 – guide plates
4 – guide plate half bushings
1 – rod guide
2 – rod guide half bushings
1 – seal plate
1 – seal pin
