Kodi Klip

The KODI KLIP® System rigidly grips rebar saddle joints, dramatically reducing wracking and eliminating unwanted motion. Its patented four-point grip gives you more consistent and stable rebar connections. KODI KLIP® Rebar Fastening System is the perfect replacement for hand tying rebar on site-pour, precast, pre-stressed, and tilt-up concrete applications.

Applications

Rebar clipped with Kodi Klip ready for concrete
PRECAST CONCRETE

KODI KLIP® Rebar Fastening Tools and Klips give you a faster, safer and better way to make rebar connections without rebar wire ties or rebar welding. Instead of time-consuming rebar wire ties or expensive rebar welding, the KODI KLIP® System can make the majority of the connections in your pre-cast or pre-stressed production process. K-KLIPS are great in flat and vertical rebar grid and rebar mat applications as well as curved, round and cage work. The secure four-way grip holds tight, eliminates wracking and streamlines work flows. Cages maintain their shape when free standing, removing the need for diagonal support bars and excessive wheel spacers.

Why Choose K-KLIPS For Rebar Fastening Without Tie Wire?

Non-Corrosive in Any Environment K-KLIPS can’t rust, won’t degrade, and won’t scratch or damage epoxy coated steel rebar, or fiberglass rebar or basalt rebar. K-KLIPS are ideal for marine or harsh applications because they don’t corrode or abrade.

Versatile Rebar Connecting System K-KLIPS firmly grip any cross, parallel, or vertical rebar connections, work on form spacers, cage assemblies, and high density mats — which can be fastened directly on the ground and then one on top of the other to eliminate additional measuring and layout time.

Four-Point Grip K-KLIPS provide uniform holding strength at every rebar connection point to eliminate unwanted motion and product stronger grids. Unlike tie wire, the K-KLIPS provide a secure four-point grip that guarantees a tight, perfect rebar connection every time, rebar connections so rigid that in most applications only 50% of joints need to be fastened.

Effortless Application With just a pull of the air operated KLIPPER GUN trigger, K-KLIPS snap into position in milliseconds, and then rigidly grip the rebar and hold the configuration motionless.

Easy-to-Identify K-KLIPS are brightly color-coded by size, making KODI rebar connections easy to distinguish and inspect.

From the Arkansas AHDT: 503.04 (a) Placement of Reinforcement: 1) When the reinforcement consists of individual bars, the longitudinal bars shall be secured to the transverse bars by wire ties or clips at alternate intersections or more frequently if necessary to maintain their position within the horizontal and vertical tolerances specified herein. (b) Splices in Reinforcing Steel. Reinforcing bars, bar mats, or welded wire fabric used as continuous reinforcement shall be lapped in the longitudinal direction in a staggered pattern as shown on the plans. All laps shall be securely tied or clipped. In lieu of lapped splices, the Contractor may use welded or mechanical splices according to Section 804.07.
