The Alligator® Lacing Fastening System is ideal for easy, economical installation of a low-profile belt splice. Available in continuous lengths, the system fits any belt width and provides uniform tension across the full belt width.

Why Lacing?  

  • Mechanical fastener rating up to 200 PIW (35  kN/m)
  • Belts up to ½” (13 mm) thick
  • Minimum pulley diameter from 1-14” (25 mm-350 mm)
  • Engineered to prevent pieces from working loose from the belt and into the product
  • Removable hinge pin allows for easy cleaning and sanitation of belts
  • Teeth embed lengthwise in the belt, providing a strong, vice-like hold.

How Alligator® Lacing Works 

Alligator LacingHammer applied Alligator® Lacing utilizes a design with teeth that are formed so that when they are driven parallel to the length of the belt, the vital longitudinal carcass fibers are not severed.

The compression fit of the connecting bar provides a strong, vise-like hold on the belt and distributes belt tension evenly across the entire belt width. The one-piece fastener strip also ensures that there are no loose pieces to work themselves out of the belt and into the conveyed product. The flat splice obtained with a continuous strip of lacing also helps with hinge pin insertion.
