Banding Tool Safety Sign / Product
Has a tensioning capability of 2,4lbs and a built-in cutter for use with banding straps up to 19mm wide.
1. Push band through buckle teeth towards the operator, ears up. Pass band around object and again through buckle. (For best results repeat this operation to obtain double banding). Anchor end of band by folding back under buckle. Take up slack.
2. Place band in slots of tool and push nose of tool against the buckle. Grip band with clamping lever and apply tension by turning handle. Maximum pressure is being applied when there is no appreciable movement of band between nose and clamping block.
3. Swing tool over buckle. This movement increases tension of band and, to avoid breakage, handle must be reversed slightly as tool is swung over, whilst maintaining band tension. Cut band with cutter lever and slide tool off in same position (or tension will be lost).
4. Hammer ears down over cut band.
