Dual Check Tester

The new, patent pending Sperry Dual Check™ Tester combines the two most common test functions of non-contact voltage and receptacle testing into a single hand held device. The combined functionality simplifies testing and troubleshooting while reducing the number of tools needed on site. “We constantly communicate with our customers and end users to develop real-world solutions,” says Mike Masino, President of Gardner Bender. “The Dual Check has been received with tremendous excitement as it saves time and money, while making electrical jobs easier.” It is ideal for Facilities Maintenance, Hospitality Crews, and Industrial / Residential Electricians.

Cutting Edge Self Cutting Cable Ties

Cutting Edge™ Self-Cutting Cable Ties are designed to be installed by tightening the cable tie and twisting the tail. The integrated stainless steel blade leaves a clean, flush cut, eliminating sharp edges and loose tail ends. “Cutting Edge Cable Ties are a true breakthrough in wire management”, says Masino. “By reducing installation time and eliminating the risk of damaging cables with the use of cutting tools, these ties simplify wiring projects; even in confined spaces.” Made from durable nylon 6/6 material with an integrated 304 stainless steel blade, these cable ties are the perfect solution for all indoor or outdoor applications. The 50 lb. tensile strength exceeds industry standard across the 8”, 11” and 14” range of available products.
