- Ideal for shorter cable runs
- Reduces fatigue of installation
- Utilized to assist in the closure of the R-Track pressure tracks
The SLR tool is an inexpensive metal ring slider designed for closing Zippertubing® R-Track products. It is ideal for both production line and field installations. The R-Track closure mechanism can be closed manually using thumb pressure in most flat ribbon cable applications. However, use of the SLR tool makes closing long cable runs easier, eliminates operator fatigue and minimizes sore fingers. The SLR tool is best suited for R-Track jackets which are to be installed on round wire and cable bundles. Round cable bundles do not provide the operator with a solid surface to apply thumb pressure like flat cables do. Track closure is achieved by inserting the upper and lower halves of the R-Track interlock into the tool and then pulling the tool down the cable run. The tool will form the jacket around the cable, snap the interlock together and close the tubing. Refer to the "SLR Tool Instructions" located under the additional information.
