This assembly is used to easily make custom lengths of Polybelt loops. A set of thumb screws are included to make clamping belt ends simple. The over-center linkage makes it easy to bring the melted belt ends together and hold in place while the belt cools. This makes installing a custom-length polybelt loop on your mechanism easier than ever. This tool can accept polyurethane belts up to 2 inches wide.
1.) Place cut belt ends under the clamping plates with about 1/16 inch hanging toward the inside. If using 1 or 2 inch wide belt, align the sides to the alignment notches.
2.) Tighten the thumb screws on both sides until the belt is snug.
3.) Using a heat source like our Belt Welding Hot Knife (am-5284) heat up the belt ends until they start to melt.
4.) Once the ends start to melt, immediately close the clamp to press the melted ends together.
5.) When cool, loosen the thumb screws on the slotted sides of the clamp (note indicator holes for reference) and remove clamp from belt.
