Description for Malco TY6

For continuous use on-the-job, the TY6 Tensioning Tool is designed for a heavy user of nylon ties. An adjustment knob allows installer to set desired tension for securing flex duct to a take-off collar. When the tie is tight, a breakaway spring mechanism releases the tool's lower handle, causing the blade to engage and automatically flush cut off the excess tail of the nylon tie. No extra operation for manual trimming is required. Nylon tie installation is fast and easy with the TY6. Works on all standard 175 lb ties as well as thinner 125 lb ties. The TY6 features a hardened steel body, long wearing parts, and a weather resistant nickel chrome finish to assure many years of dependable service.

Operating the TY6 is easy on the installer too! Contoured handles, with stops, are easier to grasp. Also, smooth lever action and vinyl cushion grips minimize hand and arm fatigue on big jobs.


  • Hardened Steel Stampings
  • Nickel Chrome Finish
  • Vinyl Cushion Grips with hand stops
  • Tensioning Adjustment Knob
  • Automatic Cut-Off Mechanism

**Turn knob clockwise to increase tension and counterclockwise to decrease tension. Do NOT over-tighten. Adjust knob only with fingers to avoid breaking ties before cut-off occurs.

Comments about Tensioning Tool w/ Auto Cut-Off:

Had to return both units. Product did not cut the nylon ties off flush. Adjustment knob did not adjust anything on the cut. This is a fault of the manufacturer, not the supplier.
