Reed's PES1CTS is a PE Squeeze-Off Tool. It has a 1/2" - 1" capacity. It weighs 6.5 lbs. This tool features a set of sliding bar handles that make work in tight places easier and increase leverage for tightening. Other features include a fine-pitched thread to allow for a controlled, low-effort squeeze; greased fittings to make operation easier and extend life; and aluminum parts to make tools lighter for easier handling. It uses positive stops to prevent damage caused by over-clamping, and PES2 models can be used on both CTS and IPS PE pipe by simply changing the safety stops.
