The universal Click-Loc version offers several advantages. First, by making the locking components as separate parts they can be produced from materials selected to maximize reusability, specifically precipitation heat-treated Inconel 718. This material provides excellent strength, corrosion resistance, and wear properties. The result is a locking feature that offers a baseline reusability rating of 100 cycles.

Secondly, since the locking components are separate detail parts they are replaceable. If the locking components ever become worn or damaged the next higher assembly need not be replaced. The locking device can be completely restored to new condition by simply installing a new lockring and sleeve. This can generally be done in situ and with simple hand tools. Simply put, the Moeller Click-Loc is the only true lifetime locking device available.
The universal Click-Loc can be installed on couplings and nuts made from steel, titanium, and nickel alloys. Additionally, these same components are being applied to lock other accessories such as filters, sensors, and valves. Retention of the Click-Loc components is by a controlled interference fit. Standard tube fitting sizes from -03 through -16 are available, as well as metric sizes M12 through M24.
