Products displaying this icon should be cut with a hot knife, rope cutter or some other method for cutting
and sealing the ends to prevent fraying during the installation and assembly process. We offer an assort-
ment of tools to accomplish this, ranging from heavy duty, high volume devices to portable gas powered units.
Measure the sleeving to length. Keep
the sleeving relaxed and don’t pull it
as you measure. The most accurate
method is to measure the sleeving on
the actual application. There will be
some foreshortening of the sleeving
as it expands over large bundles or
connectors. Mark the cut line with a
pen or marker.
When the knife is hot, slide the sleev-
ing over the cutting blade. Practice
on a piece of scrap to get a feel for
the procedure. Always cut in a well
ventilated area and avoid inhaling
the fumes. Both the blade and the cut
ends will be HOT. Be careful.
While the ends are still hot, use an
inverted funnel (needle nose pliers or
scissors also work well) to form the
end into a soft flare. This will allow
the sleeving to easily slide over your
application and accommodate plugs
or connectors without binding.
To install the sleeving over your appli-
cation, just push the flared end over
the ends of the wires and walkthe
sleeve down the length of the bundle
from behind. Once the sleeving is in
place, just run your hand over the
applied sleeving to smooth it out.
