Dip-molded tabs have more to grab

June 15, 2000
Harman Corp.

Harman Corp., Rochester, Mich., has added grab tabs to its line of dip-molded tabs for industrial applications. The grab tabs feature additional surface area for more grab-and-pull strength, and the ergonomic finger-tab version provides comfort for continuous-removal and installation processes. The grab tabs come in diameters from 0.215 to 1.25 in. and lengths from 0.25 to 2 in. Lengths can be adjusted in 0.0625-in. increments. The tabs are said to be a timesaver for thread protectors, masks during painting, shipping caps, dust caps, and other applications that protect parts from unwanted substances.
