The Magnum MLOC##24-3 Shear Lock has up to 4 tons allowable capacity in lateral load resistance at ground level. The shear lock
consists of a collar tube with (1) 3/4″ set screw for connection to Magnum helical piles. The bracket is designed in accordance with ICC-ES document AC358 as well as IBC, and AISC codes. Lateral capacity depends on Shaer Lock plate height and soil conditions. See allowable lateral capacity tables for a guide to capacity determination.
Install the helical pile to the correct depth and torque. Slide the Shear lock over the pile head and drive into soil such that shear lock plates
are completely embedded in surrounding soil. Driving can be accomplished in soft soils using a sledge hammer. Vibratory plate compactor is required in firm soils. DO NOT excavate soil surrounding pile head to install shear lock. If soil is excavated use a flowable fill to backfill excavated soil around shear lock. Prepare the pile for pile cap as required.
