Imperial® 464-FH Heavy Duty 180° Tubing Bender Handles Tough Metals

Tool eliminates scoring of tubing

GLENWILLOW, OHIO (September 27, 2005)Stride Tool Inc., a worldwide designer and manufacturer of specialty hand tools, today unveiled its new Imperial® 464-FH Heavy Duty 180° Tubing Bender, which is designed to accurately bend tubing up to 180° in stainless steel and other tough metals. The 464-FH is designed for 1/4-in. to 1/2-in. outside diameter tubing.

The 464-FH features Imperial’s patented Roto-Lok™ releasing collar and indexing handle. These allow the 474-FH to bend tubing up to 90°, rotate and lock into a new position, and bend the tubing up to another 90°. The quick-action trigger release repositions the two-stage handle midway through the bend when both handles begin to meet. That means easy fabrication of bends up to 180° with reduced effort, better control and no crossing of handles. 

The 464-FH eliminates scoring of tubing thanks to rollers in the bending handle that reduce friction and bending effort. Ergonomically molded cushion grips are durable and comfortable to use.

Stride Tool Inc. designs, manufactures and markets professional and DIY hand tools for a global customer base. Its brand, Imperial®, is celebrating its 100th anniversary in 2005 and is sold through HVAC, retail, industrial and automotive distribution.The privately held company operates production facilities in Illinois, New York and Ohio.
