Having the right installation tools can make a difference to your bottom line.

Because our products are engineered and packaged to make automated or manual assembly easy, we also make sure our tools minimize effort so you can increase efficiency and safety, while reducing downtime.

The lineup includes applicators, dispensers and wrenches to install retaining rings plus assembly tools for self-compensating hose clamps. Retaining ring applicators cover both standard inch and metric rings, while dispenser types include standard, heavy-duty, metric and even a handheld version.
