To secure PEX to wood joists, this fastener is very good, I would have to say better than hangers which secure on both sides of the pipe. The reason being that you can clip these on at any location without removing the fastener. But I would highly recommend replacing the serrated nail with a 2-1/2" screw or longer, simply because you can then easily re-position the clamp if you need to. That is difficult to do when you nail it in. Also, they should countersink the surface of the plastic on one side of where the screw meets the plastic- I found that this clamp's material was not durable enough to take the force of a tightly driven screw, or hammered-in nail for that matter. The clamps that have fasteners on both sides secure the PEX to whatever surface you're securing it to more tightly than these.

Comments about Tube Talon for 3/4" PEX Tubing (Bag of 50):

I am replacing a length of 3/4 copper with a number of 90 degree turns as this runs along a unfinished ceiling and around some obstacles this is the easiest way to attach the pex to the joists. The big box stores never have this stuff in stock.

  • Tube Talon for 1/2" PEX Tubing (Bag of 100)

    Q:

    Do these talons hold the tubing slightly off the contact surface (i.e. floor, etc.) or will the tubing be pressed tightly against contact surface?

      A:

      They will contact surface.

      A:

      Los:
      First, I took the serrated nail out of the clamp. You have to really grab ahold of that nail to get it out of there!
      Next, I used screws to mount the clamp to joists. Select a good length screw.
      Why? Easy to use a screw gun in one hand, and then hold clamp with pipe in it to the surface you want to clamp it to with the other hand. It's a two-hand operation
      Finally, the pipe is fairly tightly held to the surface the clamp is screwed into. I can't quantify that in lbs. of force, but the pipe is definitely not off the surface you are using the clamp on.
      Hope this helps!

      A:

      These anchors hold the tubing directly against the joist or stud they are attached to. They are very strong and secure the tubing extremely well.

  • Tube Talon for 1/2" PEX Tubing (Bag of 100)

    Q:

    how far apart should the tube talon clamps be for radiant heating applacation.
    Asked on 7/24/2012 by paul from Fairfield PA

    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      If you use the tube talons for radiant heat, your job will most likely sound
      like a popcorn popper each time it cycles on. Pex tubing expands quite a
      bit when it heats. I recommend the pex lock clips that suspend the tubing
      slightly below the floor. To answer your question, between 2 and 3 feet
      spacing on straight pipe and 3 clamps to make the horse shoe at the end of
      the joist bay. Unless you are using heat transfer plates, the tubing should
      not be secured directly to the floor.

      I laid mine between plywood layers. But if you are applying this under a sub floor I would place them tight to keep the heat transfer

      A:

      Those clamps are to hold tobing in place in walls and along runs in floor stringers. As far as radiant heat goes.just enough to hold pex in position during the overpour and cure, not a code requirement. If you have concrete reinforcement wire or rebar it can be wirted to it as well. Just don't use anything that will gouge the plastic.

      A:

      It depends on what type of radiant heat you are doing. If it is underneath the floor between rafters, probably every 12 to 18 inches and count of at least 4 for every 180 turn. However you should really use a alu heat diffuser which may not be compatible with the talons. Otherwise the diffusers are 12- 16 inches long and you should have a talon at each end. If it is going to be set into concrete/ gyptocrete you probably only need them every three of 4 feet since you just need to keep the pex from floating or shifting during to pour.

      You'll generally want to support PEX every two to three feet in radiant heating applications.
