Title
(EN) Compound tension and calibration mechanism for cable tie tensioning and cut-off tool
Abstract
(EN)

A hand held tool for the tensioning and severing of cable ties, including reciprocating means for tensioning the cable tie tail, locking means to prevent further tensioning upon the attainment of a preselected tension level in the tie tail, and severing means to sever the tie tail from the cable tie head. The tool includes a tension adjustment system and an independent calibration mechanism.
