Simply easier. Designed to control rotation and be more user-friendly, the Proximal Lock attaches over a larger area, which distributes weight more evenly. The adhesive included with each lock is flexible even after it sets, making donning simpler.
The CD101 Summit Lock, and CD102 LowPro Summit Lock are still available, however because of the improved liner attachment, and easier-to-use glue, we strongly suggest using the Proximal Lock instead.

The glue form for the Proximal Lock features a guide hole and locater indents to help ensure that the liner attachment is glued in the correct location.
Silicone liner attachment helps with easy doning. It also helps seal the exit hole for the tab.
Lock is easy to don, can be attached with a provided fabrication dummy or can retrofit on an existing socket.
The Tab creates a simple visual locking mechanism working well for all activity levals including geriatric, pediatric or people who need assistance doning and doffing their prosthetic.

Billing The Proximal Lock will bill just like a distal pin lock system (L5671). Gluing the lock to the liner turns the Proximal Lock from a cushion liner to a locking liner (L5673).
Improved Suspension We recommend adding an expulsion valve to most sockets that use the Proximal Lock. This helps with donning and will evacuate the maximum amount of air from the socket which improves suspension and reduces pistoning.
Limb Type The Proximal Lock was designed to work with long limbs and can be the primary suspension for patients who may not have room distally for other lock options. The Proximal Lock can be used for short limbs only with a distal pin; in this case, the Proximal Lock will act only as rotational control.
Retrofitting The lock can be retrofitted to an existing socket or put on the outside of a test socket.
Test Socket Initial fitting of the socket should be done without the lock. For extended test periods the lock can be retrofit to the socket.
