The EVO 7 was designed to reduce the risks of repetitive-stress injuries to users while actually increasing their productivity. The revolutionary, patent-pending tension/lock/cut (TLC) technology dramatically changes how cable ties are cut. This gives the EVO 7 the ability to lock each tie in place at the desired tension prior to cutting. Because the tension is fixed at the trigger when squeezing begins, only a minimum of hand force and a shorter range of motion is required to cut through each tie, and there's no jarring impact after the cut. Because each tie is cut at a consistent level of tension with less movement, there’s less wear on internal components resulting in longer tool life. An independent study conducted compared the EVO 7 with three other cable tie tools used in the wire harnessing market.
- EVO 7 required 21.7% less applied grip force than the other tools
- EVO 7 was rated as most comfortable based on lighter grip-force requirements, lack of hand pinching, and minimal kickback during use
- EVO 7 consistently ranked best in the areas of overall preference, overall comfort, ease of tension setting, and overall ease of tool use
- The ergonomic design of the EVO 7 offers improved operator safety, increasing efficiency and lending to improved productivity in the time it takes an operator to complete a task
