Wedge Action Clench
The profile of the comet fasteners has been designed to produce the unique “Wedge-Action” clench found in no other hook type mechanical fasteners. This feature guarantees a stronger hold on the belt than would otherwise be possible and leads to increased tensile strength in the finished splice.
Each box of Comet Fasteners contains 36 X 76mm (3”) combs, sufficient for 2.74M (9’) of splicing.

Comet Fastener Lacing Vise
Operated by a screw and toggle block mechanism, the Comet lacing machine accepts fasteners with an 8mm pitch and develops a clenching force of 150 kN (15 tons) between the jaws. This ensures full penetration and effective bedding of even the strongest fasteners. The machine’s robust, compact design makes it readily portable. It is designed to accept interchangeable combs and jaw plates for inserting the full range of comet fasteners.
