Hole Punch .250" Barb for Lo-Flow Drip Tape Fittings
Ejector Punch Installs Barbed Fittings into mainline tubing.
This punch has a screwdriver-grip handle with a thumb-operated waste-ejector. To use, position the punch's tip where you want to install the fitting and push with moderate pressure and a twisting action. The punch's steel tip penetrates the tubing and leaves a clean dimpled hole so that tape-loc and other barbed fittings are easily inserted into the tubing. Replaces nails, awls, and 3/16" diameter drills. It works with all diameters of mainline tubing. Also check out the EZ-Punch.
- Barbed fittings for 0.170" ID tubing
- Barbed tape-loc fittings (These have larger 0.250" ID barbs but still are easily installed with this punch).
Constructed of blue hard plastic with a replaceable steet tip, and a spring-loaded ejector mechanism. The ejector prevents the tip from clogging with plugs of tubing wall. The steel tip has a broad shoulder that reduces the risk of punching all-the-way through the tubing on a hot day, but some care is required to avoid this.
