This is a pair of belt clamps (one for each end of the belt). They are suitable for up to 6.35mm (1/4") wide belt. Unlike other mehtods (such as insertion nuts and zip ties), they are easy to install as well as easy to remove, and very sturdy. Ideally, they are used together with a belt anchor with a slot (such as the ones of the eShapeoko), or a hole large enough to pass the belt through.
The belt clamps are designed to work with our belt tensioner and our slot-type anchor plates (belt-on-top and belt-on-the-outside). If using our end plates, the belt anchor plates are not needed.
Please note that the eShapeoko kit now includes a full complement of these (only the first two batches did not have them).
The kit includes:
Four clamp halves in 1mm stainless steel;
Four M5 x 10mm hex socket cap screws;
Four M5 nuts.
