Cut and seal rope and cords up to 3/4" (20mm) diameter with the model RX-80-BCL. This uniquely designed cutter has been specially designed with a multi-function knife/sealer that will cut and seal the ends of up to 4 different sizes of rope in a two-step process. The unique tooling eliminates the flared ends and creates a 3/8" (10mm) seal around the outside ends. Tooling is custom made and can usually ship in 1-2 days.


Please specify rope diameter sizes when ordering.
