Hammering wedges has been the standard for flange spreading for generations. Many pipefitters feel wedges can be used safely, until they fly out and cause a recordable injury. The SMP FlangeBoss SafetyWedges are a pair of wedges with a safety tether. The patented safety tether allows our wedges to be anchored to nearby flange bolts. If either wedge releases from the flange gap when hammering, it will be safely contained to that immediate area. Tethered wedges help eliminate line of fire injuries. Safety is Paramount! Use on only tethered wedges from SMP
SMP Flange Boss SafetyWedges are available in all styles, brass, straight steel, steel banana and brass banana.
