How can the design of a simple part like a tie-rod can do all that?

  1. It comes with wide-mouthed cones and a plastic tube spacer. The spacer is used to position the rebar and larger-sized holes are drilled in the walls. The cones act as joiners. You save time by not nailing a holder for every rebar to the plywood.
  2. You save even more time by not searching for a small hole in the plywood for every single tie-rod your workers push through it. The wide mouthed cones act as joiners. Push the tie-rod through the strongback and attach to the cone. What could be simpler?
  3. The two wall forms line up easily.
  4. Re-use all the parts except the inexpensive plastic tube, which is left in the wall. Even the cones are easily removed. No she-bolts, spacers, snap-ties or coil-rods are consumed!
  5. HI-LITE tie-rods act as spacers and eliminate the need to nail spacers to the wall form. You save even more time.
  6. With a recessed plastic tube as the only remaining part, no spacer is exposed on finished surfaces.
