SideSwiper model SRT2 combines the comfort and added leverage of an easy-to-grasp straight handle with the smooth unlocking motion of a burr free hook. The blade of the SRT2 is angled from the bottom plane of the handle and allows the user to keep the wrist straight while keeping knuckles well above the work. Blade surface finishing and plating assures that the sharply angled hook will not cut into the vinyl material or produce shavings. Additional comfort and control is achieved with a non-slip textured handle grip. The gripping surface will not become slick from moisture, and the form fitting, plastisol dip process bonds the grip for the life of the tool. Durable one piece spring steel construction is virtually indestructible. A handy oversize hang hole in handle accommodates a 1/4 (6.4 mm) peg hook.
Snap lock plastic skirting and siding to finishing trim. Makes tabs in the cut edge of siding panel used as a finishing course at top of wall or below window. Tabs lock into utility trim. Punch raises a high projection to compensate for natural relaxation of vinyl plastic. It also works well on aluminum siding but is not recommended for steel. NOTE: The SL5 should not be used when PERMATABS are required to snap into finished trim. For this application we recommend using the Malco SL1 or SL2 Snap Lock Punch. PERMATABS is a trademark of C & H Enterprises. Not Recommended for use below 32 degree F (0 degree C).
