Pull the over-sized trigger on Thomas & Betts’ pneumatic cable tie tool to tension, accidentally snap, and trim a cable tie in record time. Using any compressor that can generate 85-100psi of dry, oil-less air, the tool works with their own proprietary Ty-Rap brand cable ties, but it will probably accommodate a range of other ties as long as they are .094 to .184 wide.
Made with an impact-resistant polymer housing and soft over-molded grips, it’s designed to be lightweight and balanced to reduce user fatigue. The tool holds the cut-offs until you eject them so you don’t have to go back and clean up after yourself. It also has two built-in hangers to keep it within reach when you need both hands.
The narrow nose can be rotated 360˚ to reach cable ties in all but the most confined spaces. The tension can be set between 18lbs and 50lbs by twisting the adjustment wheel and a tension lock keeps the tension from wondering away from where you set it.
For your convenience, the pneumatic cable tie tool ships with a 9ft air hose. Since the only place we can find the tool sells it for $930, we’ll wait for the Harbor Freight version to come out..
