The Ultimate Solution To Problems With Hand Tying Rebar
Traditionally, tie wire pliers and a tie wire wheel have been used to pull, wrap, twist, and cut rebar tie wire around two or more concrete reinforcing bars in precast concrete, tilt-up concrete, and cast-in-place concrete applications. Hand tying rebar requires a rodbuster to use both hands and make rapid and repetitive hand, wrist, and forearm movements while gripping the tie wire pliers when tying rebar grids and rebar cages. Hand tying rebar increases the chance of a serious injury like carpal tunnel syndrome, as well as other injuries such as cuts and abrasions. Further, an unsupported, round-shouldered working position when twisting the tie wire pliers on ground level rebar mats and rebar foundations increases the risk of back pain and injury. Hand tying rebar results in serious wear and tear on the body – the job is literally backbreaking.
