How Alligator® Staple Fasteners WorkAlligator Staple

Designed for light and medium duty synthetic carcass belting, the Alligator® Staple fastener utilizes high tensile, stainless steel staple attachment, in conjuction with an extended plate design. This design separates the point of fastener penetration from the line of belt flexing to eliminate splice fatigue at the point of belt attachment.

Staple fasteners are furnished in strips with a bridge between each fastener plate. This strip design minimizes the chance of individual parts dislodging into the conveyed product. The one-piece design provides a stronger splice, greater resistance to impact damage, and a smoother, unrippled joint that simplifies hinge pin insertion. Staples are hammer driven through the fastener and belt, working between the carcass fibers without severing them. The staples are then clinched crosswise to the belt, so that belt tension does not pull against the staples to unclinch them.
