saddle clamp / seatpost clamp
PITLOCKs need a saddle clamp with flat, parallel pressure surfaces. If your clamp is not suitable for PITLOCKs , you can find the right ones here...
Item: Saddle clamp (without PITLOCK)
Material: aluminum, sandblasted matt, silver or black anodized.
Function: The seat clamp clamps the seat post on the bicycle frame and thus keeps the seat post in the correct, adjusted position.
You also need a PITLOCK axle to secure the seat post.
The Pitlock saddle axle (33mm) or Set 06 standard (33mm) always fits the PITLOCK saddle clamps, as the different sizes only change the diameter of the clamp but not the distance between the clamping surfaces.
28.6 mm (for seat tubes with a diameter of 27.5 - 28.8 mm)
30.00 mm - 34.9 mm saddle clamp with spacer* (see photo)
31.8 mm (for seat tubes with a diameter of 30.5 - 32 mm)
34.9 mm (for seat tubes with a diameter of 33.6 - 35 mm)
36.4 mm - 40 mm saddle clamp with spacer* (see photo)
40 mm (for seat tubes with a diameter of 38.7-40.2 mm)
The size specification corresponds to the inner diameter of the saddle clamp.
The required size is usually on the seat tube or on the old clamp.
The outer diameter is measured at the end of the seat tube on the bicycle frame.
The diameter of the seat tube should ideally be slightly smaller than the size of the seat clamp.
The saddle clamp must be suitable for Pitlock, i.e. the contact surfaces must be flat and parallel. The threads of the axle must be greased before assembly. The seat post must fit exactly into the seat tube and have not leave any slack.
*The spacer is an internal aluminum ring that reduces the saddle clamp to the correct size.
Not only the coded nut protects against theft but also the particularly designed spring washer. It anchors with our coded nut and locks the closure. In order to undo the system the Pit key is used. The Pit keys side panels press and turn the springs of the spring washer at the same time, a principle comparable to child safety locks on certain medicine bottles. Thanks to this principle on the one hand and to the chamfered coded nut on the other hand, pliers will not have a chance to break our system. In addition the conical security ring is pivoted so that it can not be cut by using force.
PITLOCK is made of certified, high-quality and stainless steel and 10 Nm are more than sufficient (not the case for solid axles) to stick the hub incl. the bicycles fork.
Dos and Don'ts to make it more difficult for thieves to succeed
Secure your removable bicycle parts, such as the wheels, the seat, the ahead system and the brakes with PITLOCK, so that the valuable individual parts are also secured against theft.
We would be happy to receive additional hints from you.
The PITLOCK standard axles replace customary quick releases and are suitable for most bicycles. Racing bikes are special and not a standard. Since race bikes are thinner it results that the axles protrude unfortunately.
Even though we offer a broad range of several axle lengths, we are not able to cover all sizes. At best you measure the axle first, or you contact us for our advice.
The axle thread can only be shortened with the help of a hacksaw.
Attention: Please be very careful when shortening the axle.
In case the axle thread protrudes the security rings for approximately 5 mm it is possible to install our elegant end caps.
A saddle axle SA 33 with closure weighs approximately 25 gr.
