How Do I Use 3M Heat Shrink Links?

  1. Make sure the tool is clean and free of debris. If there is a detachable handle, ensure the handle is secure. If the handle is loose, detach before applying Heat Shrink.
  2. Attach a D-Ring using Quick Wrap Tape II to the tool, as shown on the left (Figure 1).
  3. Slide Heat Shrink over the D-Ring and Quick Wrap Tape II. Ensure that the Heat Shrink covers as much of the D-Ring as possible without covering the ring itself (Figure 2). NEVER use Heat Shrink without first applying Quick Wrap Tape II.
  4. Wearing heat resistant gloves, use a Heat Gun to evenly apply heat to the Heat Shrink being careful not to burn the webbing of the D-Ring or Heat Shrink itself. Allow the Heat Shrink to completely shrink around the tool and D-Ring (Figure 3). Do not apply any adhesives to Heat Shrink.
  5. Let cool approximately five minutes before using. Refrain from pulling or tugging on the connection until completely cooled (Figure 4).
  6. Once the connection is complete, test the connection to ensure proper installation has taken place (Figure 5).

NOTE: Remember to always inspect the connection prior to each use for damage or irregularities that might affect the connection. Apply approximately 5 lbs. (2.3 kg) of force when inspecting.
