V-Gripp tape distinguishes itself from the competition withits self-vulcanizing technology. By not relying on a traditionaladhesive layer, V-Gripp Tape outperforms all other tapes onthe market by creating a fully load rated and certified toolattachment point, when used in combination with a ToolCatch (or Non-Conductive Tool Catch). Extremely durable and easy to apply, V-Gripp Tape isrecommended for use on-site and in extreme conditions.
STEP 1: Cut a strip of V-Gripp Tape approximately 30cm/12"to 40cm/16" long depending on the size of the handle. Peel plastic coating away from the wrap. Tape should wrap 10-12 times around the tool. Note: Never use a Tool Catch with V-Gripp Tape on the tapered portion of a tool.
STEP 2: Place a Tool Catch attachment so that the ring ofthe Tool Catch is facing away from the centre of gravity ofthe tool. Ensure that when installed, the Tool Catch will notinterfere with the safe working condition of the tool. Makesure the tool is free of debris which would interfere withthe bonding of theV-Gripp Tape.
STEP 3: Wrap the tape around the tool while stretching the tape. It is critical to stretch the tape while wrapping, as this activates the tape and causes it to self-vulcanize creating a secure connection.
STEP 4: Once the connection is complete, test the connection to ensure proper installation has taken place.
IMPORTANT: Remember to always inspect the connection prior to each use for damage or irregularities that might affect the connection.
