80/20’s modularity is based upon the T-slot concept of our profiles. The "T" shaped slots present on all of our profiles allow for infinite positioning along the axis. While there are other types of T-slotted profiles in the industry, one modification to the 80/20 line is a slight adjustment to the " T" which creates the 2° Drop-Lock Feature.

The 2° Drop-Lock Feature is one of the many practical aspects of the 80/20 product line that many of our competitors do not have. This drop-lock consists of a 2° decline of the T-slot flange. When a fastener is tightened to (or beyond) the necessary torque, the flange will flex up to the adjoining profile, thus creating pressure which prevents the fasteners from vibrating loose.
All 80/20 T-slotted profiles have the Drop-Lock Feature
