Manual hand tools are the most basic form of strap application equipment. They are ideal for workspaces that do not have access to power sources or do not require the speed of a powered hand tool. Manual tensioners provide strap operators with a simple method for tightening strapping around a load. A manual sealer is then used to join the tensioned strap ends together, ensuring the loads remain secure during transit, handling, and storage.

The key to successful use of a manual tensioner and sealer for poly strapping lies in understanding the process.

Steps for Effective Tensioning and Sealing

Before using any tool, be sure to read through the information for safe operation found in the owner's manual. Secondly, protective eyeglasses with side shields, heavy gloves, and steel toe shoes are a necessity. Finally, do not modify a tool, for any reason, especially by extending the handle to get more leverage. This could result in a serious injury.
