Keck Clips are particularly useful for holding glass on glass joints together. Especially when dealing with pressurized or vacuum systems, you’ll want to be sure that your glass (or plastic or other material) components are held together by more than gravity alone, or worse, nothing at all.
- comes in both metal & plastic
- available in all the most common joint sizes
- perfect for reducing glassware breakage
- increase stability in delicate set-ups
Comes in both metal & plastic, in common joint sizes.
Our Keck Clips come in either metal or plastic and in a wide range of the most common joint sizes found in laboratories today. These often overlooked components are an invaluable asset to any lab, and they are the “bare minimum” of lab and joint safety.
How do I know which Keck Clip is right for my lab?
Depending on the strength required and the amount of pressure placed on your joints, you’ll want to select the strongest material of Keck Clip for your application.
When connecting heavier pieces of glassware, you’ll want to select a stronger, sturdier material. For lightweight or smaller applications, the build quality won’t matter as much.
The last thing you want is to risk losing thousands of dollars of valuable glassware due to improperly connecting your pieces with an insufficient clip. All of our products have been thoroughly tested in real-world laboratories time and again.
Heat is a great way to select the right Keck Clip.
Our plastic joint clips are made of polyacetal, and they melt at around 175 °C. Metal keck clips, on the other hand, can be useful for applications in which high heat will be used in your system. Don’t let the wrong clip be the Achilles heel in your otherwise profitable lab!
Reduce breakage, the smart way.
Keck Clips are essential for lab safety, as they reduce the chance of glass breakage in your lab. These connectors keep male joints firmly connected to female joints, minimizing the amount of “wiggle” or “play” between components.
