FranceSpar Spreader Tips


The most common FranceSpar Spreader Tips were made in black plastic, and were commonly used on spreaders with hinged spreader bases. In this application the Spreader Tips must be clamped to the shroud(s) with a SS L-bolt assembly, prior to installation in the spreader tube. With this design spreader tips must be positioned carefully, and adjusted as the shrouds stretch, to bisect the angle of the shroud at the Spreader Tip.   See also: Isomat Spreaders.
