TapeTech Carbon Fiber EasyClean® Automatic Taper
The Lightest TapeTech Taper Ever! TapeTech is excited to introduce the new 07TT-C Carbon Fiber Automatic Taper. At just 5.65 pounds, the 07TT-C is up to 20% lighter than standard tapers, which helps in reducing worker fatigue. The main tube and the control tube are carbon fiber, a material that will not dent and is temperature-neutral. No more cold tubes in the winter or hot tubes in the summer!
Easy Grip Control Tube. The control tube has been lengthened 2.5" and glide wheels added to make tape cuts easier and more comfortable. The glide wheels are recessed into flanges at each end of the control tube, and act as stops for your hands - requiring much less grip-force to operate the cutter.
Quick-Change Tape Bail Locks into place, making it easy to change tape rolls without having to put the taper down. Best of all, there are no loose parts to misplace or re-install. To change tape rolls, grasp the tape retainer wire near the end of the spool post and depress it down and out through the retainer slot. Swing the retainer wire up and out of the way, change tape rolls, sliding the new roll fully onto the spool post. Swing the retainer wire back down, and guide it into the retainer slot. It’s that simple!
No Hassle Cable Changes. The plunger stop has been improved to simplify cable changes. The metal and exposed screw heads have been replaced with a smooth, rounded, plastic plunger stop that is easy to remove and re-install. To remove the plunger stop, lift the locking tab and twist the stop ¼ turn counterclockwise. After twisting, pull the stop off the taper and complete the cable change following the normal procedure (see Cable Replacement). To re-install, align the guide tabs to the slots and slide the stop into the taper end, twisting ¼ turn clockwise. Continue twisting until the tab snaps into place, locking the assembly together. If oriented correctly, very little force should be required to install the stop. Changing a cable has never been easier!
Adjustable Braking System. This feature allows you to adjust the braking system for your personal preference. Now you have the control over the brake. It also can be adjusted tighter or looser to account for wear on your taper.
