Downs Series 68 Semi-Automatic Internal Coil Tong

These tongs are for handling coiled material having an open core such as steel and aluminum. The coil must be able to resist telescoping when lifted from the core. It the coil is unable to withstand this type of loading, it must be strapped in order to keep the coil from telescoping.

The pads on the tong are designed to have a large surface area in order to keep from damaging the coil.
