hey there,

funny question-

 

I'm an industrial design student and i'm looking into polecats- I was wondering about the mechanism that's involved in it...   is there a name to it?

maybe another item that has the same application ?

 

thanks,

 

CJB.

Matthews and avenger and kupo have similar versions made for the display industry.  It is just a basic compression fitting, similar to plumbing seals for pvc.

The Cargo bars are a different mechanism.  They have a ratcheting mechanism instead of a compression fitting.

Correct that they use a different mechanism but he did ask "maybe another item that has the same application"
