Ridgid: Tubing Press Rings

January 28, 2008


ProPress® rings allow users to press connections in less accessible areas than with other existing jaw sets, claims the company. The rings are available in six sizes: 1/2, 3/4, 1, 1-1/4, 1-1/2, and 2 inches. They have a swivel design with 180-degree rotation, allowing improved access in confined spaces or when working near ceilings or floors. The lightweight rings utilize patented swivel actuators, permitting the tool to connect to the ring at almost any angle. The system ensures a reliable connection with every press. The ProPress Ring Kits for 1/2- to 2-inch tubing are available. The rings are compatible with the company’s existing press tools.
