Cable-tie installation tool

By Plant Engineering Staff October 5, 2006

The Ty-Rap cable-tie installation tool eases fatigue with patent-pending features including an adjustable grip span to fit and an anti-recoil cut-off mechanism that reduces vibration when installing cable ties. Other patent-pending features include high-low handle-force mode, which requires low handle force to achieve high cable tie tension, and interchangeable tool heads to provide the flexibility to cover cable ties ranging from 18 to 120 pounds. The patented, 360-degree rotating nose eliminates the need to twist the tool when the cable tie orientation is rotated. The Ty-Rap also offers variable tension settings, which enable the user to install a range of cable ties to the desired application tension required. Other advantages include its ability to flush-cut when the tool severs the cable tie’s tail, eliminating sharp edges, and a 1-inch stroke length.
