Product Insight: TrimCutter™

Today, we are going to review one of Van Mark’s most essential and popular brake accessories, the TrimCutter™. When cutting with a utility knife, you potentially run the risk of damaging your brake when cutting material. Using a utility knife leaves a rough burr edge on your material. When bending material on our cam-locking brakes, the TrimCutter™ is a vital tool in cutting the material on the brake or Coil Dispenser™.
What material can the TrimCutter™ cut through? The TrimCutter™ cuts through galvanized steel, copper, zinc, vinyl, and heavy aluminum, basically anything that the brake can bend, the TrimCutter™ can cut. Best of all, the TrimCutter™ leaves a clean burr-free factory edge every time.
How easy is it to cut material with the TrimCutter™? Thanks to the unique 4-point track bearing system, combined with the low-profile grip, the TrimCutter™ gives you great control over cutting and averts the cutter riding off the brake or Coil Dispenser™.

Product Insight: Coil Dispenser™

Our first product insight introduced the TrimCutter™ followed by the MultiGauge™. Today, our product insight will focus on another key brake accessory, the Coil Dispenser™. What makes the Coil Dispenser™ great is that it saves you time and money by taking the trim coil,” From the box to the brake”, while minimizing the chance of damage. It also places the coil at a “working height”, reducing stress on your back and from bending over multiple times.
Why use this tool? Simply ask yourself how much of your coil is damaged by rolling it out on the jobsite (lawn or on boxes) or simply pulling it out of the box, then place a dollar amount on that damaged coil and if you had a way to avoid that damage, how fast would a Coil Dispenser™ pay for itself? Most contractors find that if they avoid damaging just a few rolls of coil, the Coil Dispenser™ has paid for itself.
How easy is it to use? Simply remove the center axle and load the coil from the box. (Note: Some coils have a 90-degree lead edge…
