Is the Suction Lock the same as the Easy-Off Lock? No, the Easy-Off Lock replaced the Suction Lock – We no longer offer the Suction Lock or its parts/pins.

 

Can I put a patient over 350lbs in an Easy-Off Lock? Yes, our locks are rated and tested to 350lbs, however, the strength is in the lamination and our locks can be used on patients well over 350lbs.

 

SUSPENSION SLEEVES FAQ’S

Do I need a suspension sleeve with a Coyote Lock? A suspension sleeve can help control socket rotation and can always be used as a secondary form of suspension.  If used with an Easy-Off Lock, it can hold vacuum in the socket if dual suspension is used, and will hold suction if used with either the Easy-Off or Air-Lock (in this case, it is recommended to add a valve to the socket as well).

 

MISC. TIPS

Loctite Blue 242 must be used on lock pin threads after determining the appropriate lock pin spacing.
