Wrench Head
The six sided snaptie is produced with a high quality, uniform shaped hot forged head. This six sided head permits break back of ties while the formwork is still in place. The tie uses a 1"x1" plastic cone to provide a nominal 1" break back. Use a 6 point 1/2" socket wrench to break back. After ties are broke-off, then the forms can easily be removed which greatly increases the speed of stripping resulting in significant labor savings. Masons cannot guarantee that ends longer than 4-3/4" will consistently breakback. Standard Snapties provide a safe working load of 2,250 lbs. Adequate end clamps are required to develop safe working loads.100 pieces per carton.

SNAPTIE PRECAUTIONS

1. Do not climb on ties in the forms.

2. Do not over hammer the wedges at the tie ends. Can cause pinching of the tie head and severe pre-loading.

3. Do not place concrete in one area of form, letting it build up in height exceeding the design pour rate.

4. Do not move concrete laterally by means of the vibrator.

5. Do not drop concrete in excess of 30" into wall forms. This will result in aggregate segregation and unnecessary, dangerous impact loading.

6. Do not allow concrete to build up behind plastic cone or metal washer.

7. Do not install bent or visibly damaged ties.

8. Do not allow ties to remain on the wall beyond 2 to 5 days. Remove snap portion as soon as reasonably possible.

9. Do not skip or omit any studs or walers, as this will likely cause a form failure.

10. Do not weld ties to any object.

11. Snapties are not designed to carry scaffold bracket loads.
 
 

A multipurpose tie for job-built form systems. Standard button head snap tie on one end and a 1/2" coil rod adapter on the other. Snaps off like normal tie. A low cost solution for one-sided forming and adjustable-length ties. Welded to rigorous standards using computer-controlled equipment: each tie is as strong as a standard snaptie. Standard 2250 lbs Safe Working Load

Just like Loop-Coil Ties, Snap-Coil Ties can be used with 1/2" coil rod to make adjustable ties or to anchor into existing walls for one-sided walls. Here, Snap-Coil Ties are used to form a one-sided, battered wall. The ties are threaded onto 1/2" coil rod stubs welded onto vertical sections of steel pipes left from previous grouting operation. For about the cost of a single coil tie, the ties give you the adjustability of a coil tie with the convenience of a disposable snap-tie end. Eliminates the labor and expense of coil bolts or other removable components.

Supplied with standard 1" cones and 1" breakback. Available in 4-3/4" end (SC-64) or 8-1/4" end (SC-68). Like all Transition Ties, the ties can also be used for making adjustable-length ties or used with Rebar Hooks for Stay-Form blind side walls and other applications. 100 pieces per carton.

Concrete Plug

Concrete plugs are designed to be used with 1" x 1" snaptie cones. Once the plastic cone is removed, the concrete plug is dipped in an epoxy bonding agent and inserted into the cone-shaped opening. Concrete plugs are preferred over patching due to less labor and the elimination of possible patch shrinkage.

How to Break Back Wrench Head Ties:

 

How to use the Break Back Wrench
1. Keep the tension on the tie and bracket.
2. Place a 3/8", 5 point socket and ratchet over the head of the tie.
3. Standing in front of the tie, hold the socket on the hex head with one hand and turn the ratchet with the other.
A 1/4 to 1/2 turn of the ratchet will normally break the tie end.
4. Mason's cannot guarantee that ends longer than 4- 3/4" will breakback consistently.

Shank Wrench
The wrench is designed to be applied to the tie at the concrete face after the form work has been removed using a bending and rotation movement to break off tie ends.

Shank Wrench 

Using The Shank Wrench:


Using the Shank Wrench

1. After the form has been removed, slide the wrench up the tie until the front of the wrench contacts the concrete.

Using the Shank Wrench

2. Keep the wrench tight against the concrete and push the handle towards the concrete, thus bending the tie nearly 90°. Next, rotate the wrench around the centerline of the tie. 1/4 to 1/2 turn is usually sufficient to snap off the tie end.

Break Back Wrench
The Break Back Wrench is used to break off tie ends after the forms have been stripped. Apply the wrench to the tie so that the jaws grip the wire of the tie and the wrench is flush with the concrete face.

      Break Back Wrench

Using The Break Back Wrench :

Using The Break Back Wrench 

1. Grip the tie with the jaws of the wrench, as close to the concrete as posssible. 

2. Rotate the wrench, usually 1/4 to 1/2 turn will snap off the tie end.

 

Important Tie Breaking Information:

1. For best results, ties should be broken off in two to five days after concrete placement.


2. Attempting to break the tie in "green" concrete may result in the tie rotating in the concrete. This makes it very difficult to break the tie with conventional methods.


3. For proper breakback strip forms, make sure that the spreader cone or washer is loose and the tie bead, which is located directly behind the washer, is free of the concrete.


4. When a tie will not break back or a spreader cone or washer is embedded in the concrete, use a hammer and screw driver to chip away the concrete to free the embedded part. Failure to follow this practice may result in the tie breaking near the face of the concrete instead of at the proper breakback point.
