A keyless chuck is simply a holder that allows you to mount and hold different tools such as drill bits, abrasive tools or sanding drums. Climax Keyless Chucks are manufactured to mount on a 1/2-20 threaded shaft. Tightening or loosening the chuck will open or close the jaws allowing for installation or removal of various tools.
