    Q:Can this be used with a flex collar already installed between ceiling joists to reattach the flex duct?
    by|Mar 26, 2022
    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  As long as there is access to the flex collar and flex duct joint our TY4/TY4G will work well for this application. This is the primary intended use of the tool. Whether the flex collar is already install or not shouldn’t play a role in the tools success as long as there is access to the joint that needs the nylon tie applied.

      Q:When I feed the nylon tie through it as picture on the back of the package, it doesn't seem to self-ratchet. Is it supposed to, or should I be pulling on the length of the tie sticking out as I ratchet it?

      1 Answer
      Answer This Question

      A:  You must turn the tie over if it doesn't tighten each time handle is squeezed

          After purchase and trying it out on tie wraps I use, it will only work on very large tie wraps, not the small and medium sizes I normally use.
