Snap Lock Punch
Snap lock plastic skirting and siding to finishing trim. Makes tabs in the cut edge of siding panel used as a finishing course at top of wall or below window. Tabs lock into utility trim.* Punch raises a high projection to compensate for natural relaxation of vinyl plastic. It also works well on aluminum siding but is not recommended for steel.
The SL5 should not be used when PERMATABS are required to snap into finished trim. For this application we reccomend using the Malco SL1R or SL2R Snap Lock Punch. PERMATABS is a trademark of C & H Enterprises. Not recommended for use below 32° F (0° C).
Good simple tool at decent priceThis tool works as well as any other snap lock punch that I have used. It's a fairly simple tool so there is no point in spending a lot of money on one. Just as with any snap lock punch pliers, it helps if the siding is warm or has been in the sun. This cuts down on the amount of times that the "Flap" breaks off rather than just bending outward because the material is less brittle.
