Cylinder Clamp 32mm - Aluminium
This is a handy tool to help you clamp the 32mm air cylinder of your Air Arms S400, S410, S510, EV2, TDR, FTP900, HFT500, Ultimate Sporter etc. It is used to clamp the cylinder so that you can unscrew the ends (fill valve body, firing valve or regulator) because they can be very tight. They are useful for servicing your rifle and also when you want to fit a regulator.
It is not suitable for the S200/CZ 200, I have different tools for these models in the S200 section of the eShop.
The tool has been machined out of aluminium (which is relatively soft, so that it does not mark or damage your air cylinder finish) to fit over the air cylinder, it has 2 high tensile bolts with brass washers for tightening the collet to your air cylinder. Once the collet has been secured to your air cylinder you can then clamp the tool in a vice or use a large adjustable spanner etc and unscrew the ends of the cylinder. The flats on the tool measure around 50mm or 1.97" and it is 25mm thick.
If you don't tighten it enough there is a chance it will slip on the cylinder, which can damage the blued finish. Make sure you tighten it onto the cylinder where there is internal support i.e over the fill valve body or firing valve body, to avoid crushing/damaging the air cylinder.
If you get some silvery marks on the air cylinder from the soft aluminium tool you should be able to rub them off using an oily rag or oily toothbrush.
Use it at your own risk!
There is another 32mm cylinder clamp available from my eShop
There is a video on the XTXair YouTube channel showing the tool in action.
