The 5-inch take off is an addition to the company’s self-sealing trunk line take-off products. The plastic take-off features a patented Clip and Zip™ fastening system for quick connection. The double-sided adhesive gasket secures the take off in seconds and could replace the need for mastic at the trunk line connections. It can be used with 1-, 1-1/2-, and 2-inch duct board and sheet metal trunk lines, and flex or metal duct. According to the manufacturer, there are no tabs to bend back, which saves on labor costs and prevents fingers from being cut. The polypropylene take offs are durable, nonconductive, and won’t dent or rust. The external handle allows the installer to adjust the “stay in place” damper into six different locking positions.
