Q:is it flexible? will it stretch as the tree grows?

1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  Thank you for the question. The Chain Lock does not stretch with the tree, but it can be easily readjusted manually. We hope this helps!

        Q:What exactly is the difference between the FirmFlex and SoftFlex?
        by|Apr 15, 2018
        3 Answers
        Answer This Question

        A:  The firm flex is a stronger plastic to use on trees or brushes and the soft flex can be used on flowers/vegetable garden and will not damage the plants!

        by|May 5, 2023

          A:  The firm flex is a heavier plastic and the soft flex is a lighter weight to use on plants that would easily get damaged if bound by a heavier plastic.

          by|May 5, 2023

            A:  Hi there Lock. The FirmFlex and SoftFlex are both coiled chain lock products. However, the FirmFlex is made of a harder, more rigid material with a higher tensile strength. The SoftFlex is made of a material that is more flexible and soft. Hope this helps!

              Q:Can this be used to secure planters on a deck so they don't blow over in the wind? And how easy is it to break into different lengths and secure/lock in place (and unlock if I need more access to the planter)?

              Answer This Question

              A:  The chain lock is very easy to use and the FirmFlex version is our sturdiest style. Depending upon the weight and size of the planter as well as the way you secure it, we would expect the ties to hold the planter steady. Since the ties are a keyhole-style closure, they are easy to lock and unlock by simply inserting the one end of the tie into the one of the holes and twisting to form a cross shape. The chain lock is also very easy to cut with a pair of garden clippers or utility scissors. We do not recommend using a knife to cut this product.

              by|May 5, 2023

                A:  Yes. I have used it for that purpose. It is extremely easy to use.

                by|Aug 13, 2019

                  A:  I used the small firm flex ties on my trellises to keep the plants from blowing over in the wind and all you have to do is cut the length you need with a pair of scissors and place the end into the smaller hole on the chain and twist to lock in place.

                    Not just for tying trees—although it works great for that
                    • This is one of those simple products that has many uses. It is very easy to connect to itself and disconnect, which makes it easy to adjust and add extensions to it. At about 2.5 cents a foot it can be used to bundle landscape waste for easy handling. • The strap has very little if any stretch to it and it is stronger than its stated 50-pound tensile strength. I had to install a new drive belt on my dryer. There is a very strong tensioner pulley that must be retracted while the new belt is routed over the motor pulley and tensioner. I placed a “S” hook on one end and hooked it to the tensioner and then placed one of the slotted holes over a hook on the dryer frame. It was easy to safely adjust the length to exactly what I need. • My recent use was to secure an umbrella base to both ends of the frame of a picnic table so the umbrella would stay upright. It worked great. • The product is made in China.

                    Very convenient, strong tree tie material. Can be removed and reused. Comes in a dispenser box
                    This is a pretty simple product. It does the job well. It is a strong tree tie material that interlocks so you don't have to make knots. It comes in a dispenser box (pull the tape tab on the corner, that is attached to the end of the roll). It holds up well and strong enough to replace the soft green material we used to use. I like that it can easily be reused - release the interlocking part and it comes apart to be repositioned or use on another tree (just make sure you aren't spreading anything bad by reusing this)

                    ProFlex 100 ft. Coil is 1/2 inch wide and is very versatile. Many uses and reusable.
                    ProFlex 100-foot coil in the 1/2 inch is a wonder and has many uses. We like that it is made from recycled materials. Saving plastic from the landfills. The box is well designed to dispense the amount of FirmFlex lock. Simply pull out the size needed for the project at hand. The UV inhibitors help the Tree Lock last in the harsh summer sun. We also like that it has uses in the shop. Securing light strings, hoses and electric cords. This is a great way to make a work area safer. Also saving time, no fighting with the cords that have tangled. Being that is reusable has many pluses. You then can reuse to tie up the cords or hoses. saving money.

                    Great product with many uses
                    This ProFlex 100 foot 1/2 inch wide FirmFlex chain lock tree tie coil is both strong and so easy to use. I found this tree tie coil to be not only easy to use but it's so handy to have around the house and shop. It is great for supporting trees and bushes which may have limbs that are sagging from their own weight but also I would use it in the winter to support bushes from being broken by heavy snow accumulation. The tree tie system is also great for tying up ropes, electrical cords and coils of piping. There are almost unlimited uses for this tying system. Another great feature is it is reusable and should last for many years as it is a heavy duty plastic material. The more I think of this ProFlex tying system the more uses I come up with. This is one of those must have products every household should have and I am very pleased with how it performs.

                    It's going to work for me
                    Hey ladies and gentlemen here again today with another review this time I'll be reviewing some strapping this strapping has multiple uses and functions,, I personally will be using it for some trees we plan on buying this fall, the strapping is encased in the cardboard box you just pull out what you plan to use and cut it, the material itself is a stuff plastic but not brittle

                    One of those things you can't live without!
                    I converted a 16ft polytunnel from a traditional raised bed to a gravel floor that I can configure for different seasonal growing techniques – Fall/Early Spring broccoli and peas in grow bags and summer tomatoes and green peppers in hydroponic slabs. During Fall and Early Spring grow lights are used to supplement natural sun light. I needed a quick and easy way to mount grow lights, raise and lower them as needed and quick tear down to switch over to summer hydroponic growing. Grow lights wrapped around EMT tubing with zip ties and suspended from the polytunnel ceiling with lock chain tape. I’ve come to depend on these materials for quick and easy projects because of their versatility of use. I discovered lock chain tree tape when I planted my mini orchard to secure saplings to stakes. It’s a resin/vinyl tape similar to plumbers metal pipe strapping but you can feed it through itself to secure a young tree and as it grows, adjust the tape to accommodate growth. But I found myself using lock chain tree tape for all kinds of fastening around my place. Then I discovered ProFlex 100 ft. Coil 1/2 in. FirmFlex Chain Tree Tape. Not only is the tape itself firmer – more rigid than the softer tree tape – but its also UV protected so it doesn’t break down in sun light as other brands do. So it’s perfect for keeping a 100ft extension cord coiled up and hung – easy to unfasten and quick to re-apply to the cord coil. I use this in my garden securing shade cloth feeding it through the grommets and onto hooks attached to the greenhouses. For my EMT grow light bar the ProFlex FirmFlex Chain Tree Tape is perfect with its UV protection, its strength to hold 16ft of EMT tubing and flexibility to adjust the grow light bar up/down. The 16ft EMT tubing is suspended with three lengths of ProFlex. It’s a matter of just a couple minutes to adjust the grow light bar up 6in as the plants grow. I even used a piece of ProFlex to draw the vertical length toward the outer polytunnel wall to position the lights directly over the two rows of seedlings. Then after I install a net trellis down the length of the grow bags, I can easily remove that horizontal tie. After Spring growing I can quickly and easily disassemble the suspended light bar and tuck off to the sides for the summer season. I can’t think of an easier design. ProFlex FirmFlex Chain Tree Tape will also serve me for several years through the seasons and the best part is ProFlex is made from recycled products – A win/win for everyone – and it’s a quality product. I guarantee you once you discover lock chain tree tape, you’ll discover infinite uses in attaching things.

                    Strong and versatile
                    This ProFlex linking tie is very sturdy and much stronger than I expected. I was assuming a slightly stretchy rubber-band type material but this is very firm plastic with essentially no stretch to it. It should hold small trees and other plants very strongly to allow for good root establishment. My first use was to connect a small metal trellis to a tree to anchor in a wild and wandering morning glory. The link design twists and snaps firmly together and I don’t expect it to come apart at all. The stiffness means it’s a bit tricky to connect but it’s should hold firm! Plus the repeating pattern makes it very easy to adjust the length or tighten as needed.

                    I like it
                    This stuff seems to be pretty tough. I highly recommend using gloves to handle this and use a ratchet strap to collapse the limb bundle before retaining the bundle with this stuff. It's easy to use relatively strong. The pictured bush is a Rose of Sharon that is a little out of control and this stuff is holding up and doesn't appear to be damaging the bark. I didn't test this on any real trees and am not sure I can recommend it for trees, but on unruly shrubs and bushes like lilacs its a go to product. It has a surprisingly tight bend radius I will be curious to see how it holds up to UV and Michigan weather

                    Strong, durable, easy to tie, easy to untie and retie
                    Landscape "On Standard" plants are notoriously top heavy and battered by weather in their early years of growth. I've tried several ways to support these plants against high winds and this ProFlex Chain Lock Tree Tie is the easiest I've used. I can keep the loop around the trunk loose enough so it doesn't choke the bark and make it tight enough to secure on a T-post. I can loosen, move, and retighten as needed so the tree can move to develop root strength but not be bent over and break the trunk. I also use short pieces to make loops to train grape vine to a trellis until the vine wraps around the wire by itself. Having 100 feet on a roll lets me cut off sections of any length I need.

                    Super convenient and easy to use
                    I planted several small trees that I got from the HD garden center (good prices, BTW), and wanted to ensure they grow straight. I could have used string or rope to straighten them, but thought I would try this tree-tie. Wow, this stuff is super easy to use. You just cut a piece with scissors, and adjust to the length you need by pushing the end through a slot and turning it 90 degrees. Very easy to adjust to get the tree straight. I am never going to mess with string again! I got this for use on trees, but you could also use it for organizing extension cords or air hoses. Pretty handy stuff.
