This style is shift locked in the same maner as the standard design, but will lock only in one direction. Therefore, with this design the leading edge must always be on top or always be on bottom in order to work.
Ideal for operations which are joining a wide range of materials. It can join thin materials with reduced risk of tabs breaking off of the strip. It can join materials up to .250″ thick.
This style of stitch has four point locking, providing approximately twice the strength of the standard design.
Tension must be applied after making the stitch in order to shift lock it into position and prevent the material from coming apart. The stitch will lock if pulled from either direction.
Ideal for operations joining materials up to .1″ (2.5mm) where the extra strength of the arrow design is not needed.
This style of stitch has two point locking, providing approximately twice the strength of the standard design.
