McKechnie-Style Top Fix Plate with Cam Lock

Product Description

McKechnie tracks are connected to their brackets using a Cam Lock device - a small swivelling piece which provides the join between track and bracket and allows for easy removal of the track if required.

The 'official' McKechnie cam locks are no longer available, however we have been able to source a top-fix plate which uses a McKechnie-style cam lock that is compatible with McKechnie system tracks.

Compatibility:

McKechnie tracks supplied before 1998 will most likely use a plastic Cam Lock, which is prone to becoming brittle and snapping after long exposure to UV light.  These plastic Cam Locks have now been updated to a fully metal version, providing significantly longer life whilst remaining fully compatible with previous Sylon systems.

These Cam Locks are suitable for McKechnie brand tracking systems.  Sylon, STM and Styleline tracking systems have a very similar track profile but require a different Cam Lock specific to that system.

You will note that this cam lock is slightly shorter and stubbier than an original McKechnie camlock.  This does not affect the compatibility of the cam lock in original McKechnie tracks - this piece has been tested by numerous customers and all have reported success.

Important Note:

These Cam Locks are designed to suit brackets which use the 'keyhole' system of Cam Lock fitment.  You can identify these systems by the 'keyhole' shaped cutout in the top of the bracket which allows the Cam Lock to be replaced separately to the bracket.

These cam locks are not available separately, and can only be purchased as a combined part with a top-fix plate.  Although the cam lock can be removed from the plate and installed into an existing face fixed bracket, you may need to file down some paint around the keyhole ridge of your existing bracket as these cams appear to be slightly thicker than the original McKechnie cams.

Some older (1970s & 1980s) McKechnie brackets use a Cam Lock which is pop-riveted to the bracket, with the two pieces permanently attached.  If you have this style of McKechnie bracket you will need to take down that bracket and replace with the new Cam Lock and bracket arm included with this part.

Colours:

These metal Cam Lock parts come in White only.
