Band Tying Jig
Tie your own bands for a perfect fit!
Tying your own bandsets for your slingshot? Then you need a jig! This jig does it all...
Fully adjustable (even the wrench is included) for every band you throw at it, the slingshot handset jig will clamp down onto your band as you are tying and provide the exact amount of stretch needed for success. Made in China.
The stretching mechanism grabs onto your pouch (centering hole or no centering hole) to provide the stretch you need to make a strong tie that won't let go. Comes with suction cup feet and a wrench. The hole in the frame also allows a desk mount if desired.
The clamp is a soft material that will not damage your bands and is easily adjustable to provide just the right tension.
If you're not tying your own bands, you're missing out. If you are not using a reliable jig, you're missing out.
Extra pair if hands
Its like having an extra pair of hands. Holds material well and the non-slip feet keep it place.
After watching the Simpleshot video on how to attach the band to the pouch. It took several tries to make good on a band set. Practice makes Permanent.
Great tying jig!
This jig is incredible easy to use and adjust for tying both flat bands as well as tubes. It really beats trying to use clamps and other frustrating methods!
Band tying jig
Took a little getting use to it’s kinda hard to hold everything and clamp down the band but I use forceps to hold the band and then clamp it down the 1/4 inch bands are the hardest but the larger bands are not as bad
Band Tying Jig
Just received this jig and really like the solid construction and has a nice weight to it as well. The only reason I am not giving it 5 starts is that I feel there is a slight design question in the alignment. This come with the pouch hook up which I prefer but it not aligned with the clamp so the pouch is being pulled up at an angle rather than straight across. If you turn the hook over you can get a straight pull but I don't like the less secure feeling where it could fall off. If does take some fiddling to get the clamp right and it took a bit to realize the red end will screw off so you can flip the piece over (heard that the black side is for bans whereas the red side is for tubes). The supplied wrench is a bit oversized so I will probably look for a new one but it did get the job done for the initial setup. Overall a very good jig and I would recommend it to anyone wanting to tie bands/tubes. Oh, I'll be gluing a neodymium magnet to the wrench so it will stay with the jig.
It’s a bit cumbersome to use.
