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.
Screw Buckles are used for the application of clamps in restricted areas for temporary clamps and for other special applications where adjustments may be necessary. Set screws with specially designed tips are used to grip the band within the buckles. All Screw Buckles are packed in boxes of 25 complete with set screws and Allen key.
Screw Buckle Application
1 Apply band and Screw Buckle to object as described for regular buckles.
2 Tension in normal way, but do not move tool in arc to fold band over buckle.
3 Insert set screw into buckle and tighten with Allen key to secure band. Press cutter blade handle down to cut band.
Complete clamp by folding stub into buckle. To allow for re-use of clamp or any adjustment to tension, a 100mm stub should be left.
