We know the importance of turning down the ends of kliplok roof sheets.
And like everything in life, the right tools makes the job easier and produces a better finish.
Sadly, the standard tool that we buy to turn down the ends of kliplok sheets is a disappointment and produces a sub standard result. It is even dangerous because it slips prematurely.
And for a while, we have resorted to using the trimdek tool to do turndowns on kliplok sheets.
Even though the trimdek tool is designed for a narrower pan and we had to perform two lapping actions to complete a turn down.
Then my guys discovered a neat little trick.
If you reverse the trimdek tool and use the turnup end of the tool to perform the turn down – it produces a perfect result.
We can now throw the standard kliplok turndown tool away and just carry the more versatile trimdek tool in our tool boxes.
Just a note that the trimdek also has an integrated corrugated sheeting turnup jaw
