Camlock Forming System

Gates camlock is a light commercial, hand-set forming system.  The Cam-lock bracket engages the self-centering loop tie, securely holding the 2×4 waler into place.

The Gates camlock forming system uses common forming materials like 2×4 walers and 3/4″ plywood.  It requires no special hardware and cuts the use of stiff backs and walers in half.
