The Alligator® Ready Set™ Staple Fastener System from Flexco is ideal for a wide variety of light- and medium-duty fastener applications. The system features one-piece fastener strips with pre-inserted staples that speed installation and keep downtime to a minimum.
Designed for belts from 1/16” (1.5 mm) to 1/4 “ (6.4 mm), Alligator Ready Set installation is easy. The application tool is portable and light weight enough to be carried to the job for on-site installation. Users simply fit the fastener strip onto the belt end and secure it with the tool, then drive and finish set the staples for a strong, long-lasting splice.
Alligator Staple fasteners are furnished in strips with a bridge between each fastener plate. The strip design minimizes the chance of individual parts dislodging into the conveyed product. The one-piece design provides a stronger splice, greater resistance to impact damage, and a smoother, ripple-free joint that simplifies pin insertion.
Staples are hammer driven through the belt, working between the carcass fibers without severing them. The staples are then clinched cross-wise to the belt so that the belt tension does not pull against the staples to unclench them.
