Our V-BAT™ Pipe Clamp is designed to be attached to walls, ceilings, beams, and a unistrut channel(when used with a spring nut), providing additional support and functionality.

Spring Nut:

Spring nuts are unique fasteners designed to slide into the unistrut channel and lock into place, offering a secure and adjustable conjunction point.


Bolts are used to fasten Our V-BAT™ Pipe Clamp to the spring nut. Always ensure you have the correct size and type as specified by the manufacturer. Our V-BAT™ Pipe Clamp has a threaded rod/bolt hole size of 5/16" but can be expanded to 3/8".

Step-by-Step Installation Guide

Step 1: Preparation

Ensure the working area is clean and free of obstructions. Collect all tools and materials, and double-check that you have everything required for the installation.

Step 2: Positioning the Unistrut Channel

Decide on the exact location where you want to install The V-BAT™ Pipe Clamp on the unistrut. Use a measuring tape to find the correct position, and mark it with a pencil or marker. Ensure that the unistrut channel is level to provide a stable installation.

Step 3: Inserting the Spring Nut

Insert the spring nut into the unistrut channel. The spring nut has a spring mechanism allowing easy positioning within the channel. Slide the spring nut to the marked position.

Step 4: Aligning The V-BAT™ Pipe Clamp

Position Our V-BAT™ Pipe Clamp over the spring nut. Align the holes on The V-BAT™ with the spring nut.

To provide a secure installation, accurate alignment of The V-BAT™ Pipe Clamp is crucial.

Step 5: Inserting the Bolt

Insert the bolt through The V-BAT™ Pipe Clamp and into the spring nut. Start threading the bolt by hand to ensure it catches precisely.

Once the bolt is threaded, use a socket to tighten it securely. Be careful not to overtighten, as this could strip the bolt and nut thread.

Step 6: Final Adjustments

Once The V-BAT™ Pipe Clamp is securely attached, check its alignment and make necessary adjustments. Ensure that Our V-BAT™ Pipe Clamp is securely fastened.

Step 7: Inspection and Testing

After installation, inspect Our V-BAT™ Pipe Clamp and the unistrut channel to ensure everything is correctly installed and solid. Test the stability of The V-BAT™ Pipe Clamp by applying a small amount of force to ensure it does not move.

Tips for a Successful Installation

  • Double-Check Measurements: Accurate measurements are critical for a successful installation. Always double-check your measurements after marking.
  • Use the appropriate Tools: Using the required tools for the job will make the process smoother and prevent damage to the components.
  • Follow Manufacturer Guidelines: Refer to the manufacturer’s instructions for specific details.
  • Safety First: Wear appropriate safety gear, such as gloves and safety glasses, to protect yourself during installation.

Common Issues and Troubleshooting

Spring Nut Slippage

If the spring nut slips within the unistrut channel, ensure it is properly inserted and aligned. Re-adjusting the position or using a different spring nut will solve this issue.


If the V-BAT™ is not aligning correctly with the spring nut, double-check the positioning of both components. Adjust as necessary to achieve proper alignment.

Bolt Not Tightening

Ensure the correct size and type, if the bolt does not tighten properly. Using the incorrect bolt can lead to a loose connection.
