Ties That Bind

Ideal for foundation pours or concrete columns, Prolok is a line of rebar and mesh chairs that allows builders and contractors to ditch the wire or bar ties typically used on a construction site. The chair’s special head locks rebar automatically and raises the rebar or wire mesh during a concrete pour. Cost: 33 cents to $1.06 per piece.
