Taper locks, also referred to as taper fit bush, is a common locking mechanism in power transmission used for locating sprockets
and pulleys to shafts
. They are pre-bored and keyed to ensure they match the required keyway diameters.
The taper locks are designed from cast iron and machined to high-quality finish. Besides, they are computer-etched to make it easy to identify them. The common metric sizes of taper lock bushes ranges from 0.35″ to 5″ and 9″ to 125″.
To use a taper lock bush, all the screws
should be tightened alternately and evenly until they are fully pulled up so that the bushing is square into the hub. Every taper lock you buy will come with installation instructions to make your work easy.
