The unique spherically seated design of Tinius Olsen stud-mounted grips ensures positive alignment.
Automatic self-alignment is obtained by the free movement of a spherical nut in a matching spherical counter-sink in the mounting plate. When the sample fails, shock and grip recoil is absorbed by the helical spring.
