Positioning Collars & Sleeves

Our aluminum bronze reel positioning collar and tapered cone provide a secure, concentric hold for your reels.

Install the insert sleeve on the reel bar and insert it into the reel as far as possible. Install the reel positioning collar directly behind the sleeve flange and tighten the locking bolt to 50 ft-lbs. You can generally approximate this torque by hand tightening the nut and then applying on complete turn (360°) if a torque wrench is not available. Do not exceed the rated capacity of the lifting hooks.
