Malco is proud to announce the arrival of two new products this June to our ever-growing list of product offerings. We’ve released an Expanded Family of Multi-Track Pliers and also Expanded Adjustable Nylon Ties.

As always, our new offerings are intended to make life easier for workers in HVACR, automotive, fence, deck and rail and roofing, siding and gutter.

Whatever your task may be, pliers are almost always needed and Malco is thrilled with our Made in the U.S.A. Expanded Family of Multi-Track Pliers.

Malco Multi-Track Pliers

These pliers include the MT-12 (12 in.), MT 10 (10 in.), MT-7 (8 in.) and MT-6 (6.5 in.). When choosing pliers, there are multiple reasons to choose Malco:

  • Undercut Tongue and Groove Adjustment will not slip! Jaws are held securely in selected position.
  • PermaLock Fastner eliminates nut and bolt failure.
  • Heat Treated Right-Angle Teeth grip better, last longer.
  • No Pinch Point. Lower jaw and reinforcing rib prevent handles from touching.
  • Long, Vinyl-Cushioned Handles give powerful leverage with a gentle spread for easy one-hand operation.
  • Reinforcing Ribbed Edge minimizes stress breakage.
  • Rugged V-Jaw (MT-10 and MT-12) V-shaped jaw creates more points of contact on pipe and round stock for stronger bite and more control.
  • Straight Jaw (MT-6 and MT-7) Ideal for gripping square or hex fastners plus small diameter pipe, conduit and cable connections.
  • Thin Design, Tempered Steel Halves allow access in confined spaces where pliers and wrenches won’t go.

Malco also introduced the Expanded Adjustable Nylon Ties. These ties have new UV resistant options and jumbo heavy duty straps for indoor or outdoor bundling and securing applications. Made of 100 percent nylon, these one-piece, self-locking ties are easy to install. Just wrap tie around material, slip tail through head, tighten and set with a Malco Tie Tensioning Tool.

Malco Nylon Zip Ties

These UV Resistant 11 and 24 inch ties are outdoor rated use including HVAC Mini-Splits and Window Units, and securing/bundling Automotive, Marine, Industrial Cable, Hose and Wire.

The Jumbo 36 and 48 inch Heavy Duty ties are indoor rated use including securing HVAC Take-Offs, and securing/bundling heavy cables and hoses.

These ties work perfectly with Malco’s non-slip, long-life, Tie Tensioning Tools. The TY4G and Un-Gripped TY4 Manual Cut-Off models with comfortable handle openings and reduced pinch point are rugged tools that also feature unique non-slip, long-life notched gripper to ratchet and set thick and thin ties.

The TY6 model with automatic cut-off can be pre-set to engage blade and cut off tie tail at a desired tension. Designed for continuous use on thick ties, the TY-6 features contoured cushioned handles and a long-life notched gripper.

Stay tuned as Malco will have more new products coming out in July!

Spring showers bring….? Too often April and May showers bring leaking water into the exterior walls of a home. This can happen to a home especially when gutter nails and fasteners come loose from their respective locations and cause the gutters to hang away from the roof.

Obviously, nobody wants that.

That’s why we recommend changing from gutter nails to screws, which will help your gutters stay nice and firm against your house and keep you from getting any leakage. The good news for you is that Malco has proudly introduced their new, long-reach Gutter Screw Guide, which works over the outside edge of a rain gutter to hold and drive ¼-inch hex head screws up to 3-3/4 inches long.

Gutter Screw Guide

If you happen to have gutters that tend to sag away from your house and want to switch over to gutter screws, we recommend climbing a ladder and counting how many nails you have (and also check the ferrules as well to see if any of them need replacing. The ferrules are the small cylindrical objects where the stems of the nails are fitted in to.

You should take a sample nail and ferrule from the gutter and bring them with you to the hardware store, so that you know exactly what size replacements you need. Pull out the old nails, either by hand if you’re able, or with a claw hammer if it’s still in too tight to just pull off.

You don’t want to use the exact holes the nails
were in, pick a spot just above the previous hole. Our new Gutter Screw Guide is an impact-grade 6-inch long power drive, with a 4-1/2 inch anodized aluminum sleeve, provides easy access to the mounting surface of eaves without marring the gutter finish. The Gutter Screw Guide Toolpower drive’s hex shank fits any drill or ¼-inch impact driver and the aluminum sleeve guide ensures support for fast, accurate screw starts and for stabilizing long screws, at any angle, during installation. A permanently bonded, spring loaded magnet keeps the hex head screw fully engaged in the power drive. The screw seats flush every time and the magnet will not fall out!

This new Gutter Screw Guide is another great example of Malco’s long-standing tradition of quality and innovation.

Let spring showers bring flowers, not water leaks in your home!
