To Tension Banding

N/A After installing the wire buckle onto the strapping, insert the near end of the strap between the tool’s forks and rotate the tool counter-clockwise (towards you) to grip the strapping. Grip the far end of the strap (first side of the buckle) with your hand or pliers. Pull the strap with the P173 until tight. When tight, release the strap from the forks. Insert the near strap into the cutter slot and slide the blade against the strap to cut.



N/A P173 is included in ESK-01 strapping kit.
