This section of our catalogue contains our Locking Screws and Plates. Locking technology is different from using standard cortical screws and plates as with cortical ixation the plate is trapped between the head of the screw and the bone and it is held in place by the threads of the screw in the bone. This means the cortical plates have to be properly contoured because if they are not then as the screws are tightened they will exert uneven forces on the plate and create areas of stress.

With locking technology the threads of the screw engage the bone but the plate is held in place by the threads in the head of the screw which engage with the threads in the hole of a locking plate, therefore securing the plate in place. The locking plate requires little, if any, contouring because the screw tightens into the plate and not onto the bone so the plate almost acts like the connecting bar in an an external fixatior.

If a locking plate is contoured then locking plugs should be put into the surrounding locking holes to protect them. A dedicated drill guide, which locks into the plate hole, must be used when drilling the holes to ensure the screw isn’t angled because any angulation will affect the screw head and plate interface.

Following a number of requests we have also introduced Star (Torx) Head Locking Screws so you now have the option of Hex Head or Star (Torx) Head.

Stacked Locking holes will accept cortical screws but there is rarely a need to use them in a locking plate unless a small angulation is desired, which can’t be done with a standard locking plate and screw. Our locking plates also have the Limited Contact notches on the underside of the plate.
