a jaw set having a first jaw pivotally connected to a second jaw, the jaw set further comprising a pivot pin and a coupling pin provided on the first jaw;
an adapter frame having a housing provided with spaced-apart first and second coupling seats to engage with the pivot pin and the coupling pin and a cylinder to pivot the second jaw relative to the first jaw;
at least one locking element rotatably supported at the second coupling seat for retaining the coupling pin, the locking element includes a C-shaped retaining member to receive and engage the coupling pin;
wherein a cut-out arc extends along a portion of a circumference of the locking element; and
wherein the cut-out arc is bound by stop limits formed on the locking element wherein the stop limits abut a limit element for restricting the rotation of the locking element.
