HT-S Strong Bind Tapeners®
Current Stocked Models
New Model Arriving Early 2024
There are jobs that just need a stronger tie such as larger caliper trees tied to stakes, heavy grape loads tied to trellis wires, staked trees in windy areas, trellising apple and pear trees or even strapping irrigation risers and tubing just to name a few. This Strong Bind Tapener® and Tarpaulin tape does the job.
It takes a special tape for these strong ties – the MAX TAPE-T32B Tarpaulin Tape
These Tapeners® use the heavier duty 404F-L Staples (604E-L staples will not work)
but uses the same TC90045 Tapener® Blades.
Note: This Tarpaulin Tape does not stretch. When you apply it to growing trees, remember to give it some slack (extra space inside the tie) for growth and come back 9 months to a year later to cut it off and re-tie. Nursery growers are doing this for large caliper boxed trees or field grown trees and find there is time and material saved over doing the same tie by hand with 2-3 wraps of 1″ 8 or 12 mil tape since they normally go back 9 months later to re-tie any way. Grape growers usually cut off the cordons after the season, so not stretching is not an issue. The Strong Bind ties replace the non-stretching wire twist ties applied by hand in the vineyards.
