Orthopli Corporation has designed this line of lap joint instruments for the doctors that do not prefer the box joint construction.   Orthopli lap joint instruments measure approximately 1/2" shorter in total length then the traditional Orthopli box joint forging.   The forging is manufactured with a stainless steel forging.   The joint area operates without washers or shims, which will aid to the smoothness in the opening and closing of the instrument.   Below are a few of the Orthopli lap joint instruments.   Keep in mind that Orthopli can manufacture any of our instruments with a lap joint construction.
