Secures electrical wire

The Lockit Preassembly equipment is designed to permanently secure Lockit strain relief bushings onto electrical wire resulting in a custom subassembly in any quantity. The system can be installed with fingertip pressure at a later stage of storage assembly, reducing the chance of stress injury to the equipment. There are three sizes of models available to provide manual and semiautomatic assistance in the application of the RDD Lockit onto current-carrying wire-the Headlock(TM) tool, the Autolock(TM) tool, and the Footlock(TM) tool.
