High leverage tensioning tool with auto cut-off,-

for continuous use on-the-job. The TY6 Tensioning

Tool is designed for a heavy user of nylon ties. An

adjustment knob allows installer to set desired

tension for securing flex duct to a take-off collar. When

the tie is tight, a breakaway spring mechanism releases

the tool’s lower handle, causing the blade to engage

and automatically flush cut off the excess tail of the

nylon tie. No extra operation for manual trimming is

required. Nylon tie installation is fast and easy with the

TY6. Works on all ties including thin designs.

Operating theTY6 is easy on the installer too! Contoured

handles, with stops, are easier to grasp. Also, smooth

lever action and vinyl cushion grips minimize hand and

arm fatigue on big jobs.

The TY6 features a hardened steel body, long wearing

parts, and a weather resistant nickel chrome finish to

assure many years of dependable service.
