Slide-Loc® Quick Release Lever  (Thumbscrew Replacement)
Our latest evolution is to take on the meek and humble thumbscrew... often a thorn for hobbyists... and replace it with what can only be described as a massive leap forward. The Patent Pending lever replaces the need for many nylon thumbscrews. Additionally alleviating the need for undersized bulkheads, eliminating many complex machined lids, & better preserves the integrity of the gasket.
