Half inch tool 16 gauge rings 

Two ring closing options to fit your needs

  If you're building cages or traps for critters, eels, or crabs and need the tightest closure to get you the rigid assembly you need the smaller closed diameter setup is for you.  We've used the half inch 16 gauge rings for our eel and crab traps for years without any problems.  You'll want stainless steel rings if you're doing marine work and galvanized for most other applications.  Blunt tips on the ring for most fabrication is right but if you need a piercing ring for installing seat covers and the like we can set you up with sharp tips.  We have learned with use,  that the improved magazine design where you can see the back of the mag rigidly attached to the tool enhances function and reliability.  The older design the magazine is only attached where the rings are fed into the jaws.

The loose closing tool is for fabrications that require movement.  Hinges for cage doors or parts that need to swing free or other movement required in your design.  This is the correct setup for installing nets in lobster and other marine traps.  The jaws are designed to close the "C" ring so the tips pass enough to fasten the parts but leave the wiggle room you need.

To keep it simple we include shipping to four zones the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, South, and West Coast

Three Quarter Inch Tool 15 Gauge Rings

 

The tool for the larger 3/4" hog rings is based on the same Sunburst power pack with larger magazine jaws and ring feeding slide.  Our most common use in manufacturing is installing the high density polyethylene sheets on our very fishy conch traps.  The larger heavier ring can be used to head up super duty traps, for bag sealing onion bags full of oysters to go to market and we have made thousands of vexar plastic bait bags.  If you are doing clam boil bags or other food related production there is a food grade lube available to keep the tool and the board of health happy.

To keep it simple we include shipping to four zones the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, South, and West Coast
