It has a trade name that has escaped me. Pig tail or something like this. It is used to tie the wires that hold rebar. If you have ever tied rebar you will not want to do without one of these. They are a fine tool but beyond that they are like most other tools….not so good. by that I mean it would be like using a wood chisel for a screw driver but when you get the rebar ties it is a fine tool. This was no doubt designed by a person working in the trenches that had never heard of a patent so he died tying rebar with a smile on his face instead of sitting in a recliner in front of the fire place.
