The versatile FDC3 Flex Duct Tool is actually three tools in one!

The finely honed dou-

ble-edged knife blade cleanly pierces through the outer skin, insulation and liner con-

struction of flexible round duct and cuts in either direction. A thumb-operated latch opens

the tool’s compound-leverage handles and the jaws of a built-in wire cutter to easily sever

the exposed wire rib coil of duct liner. Use the tool’s tie-tensioning mechanism to install a

nylon tie strap and secure the flex duct take-off collar. With the handles of the FDC3 in the

open position, a nylon tie can be threaded through the mechanism and then tightened

by gently pumping the tool’s handles. Use the wire cutter to trim excess tie strap tail.

Trimming and installing flexible round duct is now as easy as one-two-three with Malco’s

FDC3 multi-purpose Flex Duct Tool.

Built-in wire cutter lets you finish the job you started with just one tool! Double

edged blade cleanly pierces through outer skin and insulation. Cuts from either

direction around entire circumference of duct. Fine honed blade is long lasting

stainless steel. Wire cutter cuts hardened wire rib coil. Compound leverage, for

easy wire cutting. Comfortable, non-slip vinyl gripped handles.

Flexible duct is often susceptible to kinks and sags that restrict air flow.

The FDS1 Flexible Duct Support eliminates air flow restrictions and increases

efficiency to dramatically reduce utility bills and improve heated or air-condi-

tioned room comfort. A properly supported 90°duct elbow typically improves

air flow efficiency 10 to 40%. A Malco Duct Support quickly installs on new or

existing flexible duct. The versatile FDS1 design uses either 36 or 48 inch nylon

cable/zip ties to accommodate 4 inch to 16 inch diameters of flexible fiberglass

wool duct as well as un-insulated flexible duct. And the strong, but lightweight,

100% recycled polymer support will not weigh down ducting. UL Classified 2043

Cuts insulated flexible round duct and also cuts the duct liner’s wire rib coil. Pointed

bottom blade easily pierces duct to start cut. Heavy duty wire cutter is located away

from scissor blades. Thumb operated latch ensures that sharpened blade edges stay

closed when not in use.
