For Fixation of Sutures and Tapes to Cortical Bone

The Fastlok is a titanium alloy staple and buckle fixation device, designed for fixation of sutures and tapes to cortical bone.


The Fastlok is indicated for various soft tissue and connective tissue repairs including:

  • Tendon repairs, transplants or transfers in which the tendon is connected to bone via sutures or tapes
  • Ligament repairs, reconstruction or replacement in which the ligament material is connected to bone via sutures or tapes
  • Prosthetic ligament reconstructions and the attachment of other synthetic materials to bone

Fastloks are suitable for USP 2 (Metric 5) sutures or larger

The Fastlok is implanted with the specially designed Impactor Assembly and can be removed, if required, using the Impactor Assembly and the Sliding Hammer.
