ORLANDO, Fla. - The Malco PEX to Wire Tool and Clip system is said to be the least labor-intensive method for securing a PEX tubing in-floor radiant heating layout on a wire grid. The tool features a 25-count clip capacity magazine feed to speed through PEX installation. The heavy-duty 12-gauge (2.5 mm) steel clips will not jam, break, or abrade tubing, says the company. A generous opening and inside diameter makes the clips safe to use for all PEX to wire fastening applications and all brands of PEX tubing from 3/8-inch (10 mm) to 3/4-inch (19 mm) diameters.
The tool design features “RedLine” handles for comfortable one-hand operation, including a durable, easy-open/easy-close ambidextrous latch. According to the company, the easy-to-grasp handle opening reduces operator fatigue by maximizing the leverage of compound head-to-handle linkage while providing a natural fit and feel for the hand.
