The Inline Clamp-O-Tron is a docking port on the side of the vessel. Until version 0.20 it was named Hull-mounted Clamp-O-Tron. Like the Clamp-O-Tron Shielded Docking Port it must be opened before docking.
It allows other parts to be placed on either side, so that the craft can maintain a streamlined profile, and also allows the crew move through. It is not so durable as the Mk2 Clamp-O-Tron, and has the same empty weight, doesn't have monopropellant tank built in, so in case of building an Mk2 fuselage based craft, that is more preferable to use.
|“||The Inline Clamp-O-Tron was an accidental invention, created after an engineer (who really should have been wearing his glasses) incorrectly interpreted the Shielded Clamp-O-Tron's blueprints. Still, the rest of the team very much liked the idea of a sideways-pointing docking port with its own aerodynamic shell, so he patented the design. He still refuses to admit it wasn't intentional.||”|
