One wouldn’t think you could improve on a simple thing like a lock ring, but Lee Precision has. The new split clamp spline drive makes all other lock rings obsolete and clumsy to use. It starts with a custom extrusion of high strength aluminum with a splined exterior surface. Lee Precision split the ring and added a cross bolt that when even lightly tightened, applies a vice like grip on your dies. No tiny set screws that easily strip or damage your die threads. The famous Lee “O” ring was added because no matter how securely you have the lock ring clamped to the die, it will loosen in the press during operation without the friction of the “O” ring. The “O” ring allows you to finger tighten into your press and it will never loosen during operation yet you can easily remove your die with finger pressure. Use with the handy slim profile lock ring wrench, works great when fitting dies on a turret or tool head. Dies are simply easier to install with the lock ring wrench.
