Easy Installation
Drill and tap 2 holes in your mounting surface and install the anti-rotation studs. Slide brake onto the keyed shaft. Tighten set screws. V-Brake Installed.

Wide Torque Range
From 1.4 to 10,692 in-lb the V-Brake is available in four different models to meet the needs of practically any application. Get the performance you need with the V Tension Brake.

The V Pad
A game changer in the industry: No tools required to change every pad on your V-Brake. Just snap-out your old pads and snap-in the new ones. In only seconds every pad is changed.

Bi-Directional Operation
Unwind from the top or bottom of your roll.

Increased Cooling Capacity
The V-Brake succeeds where others fail. Even with high-torque at low speeds the V Tension Brake provides precise control. The V-Brake cover can also be fitted with a built in fan to provide users even greater cooling capacity.

High Heat Dissipation & Thermal Capacity Discs
Montalvo’s signature high thermal capacity discs combined with a patented fin design provides maximum heat dissipation to keep your V-Brake operating at the highest quality.

Immediately Operational
The V Tension Brake arrives ready for installation as a complete unit: safety cover and all.
