Now, cracks may run through the corner of a pool, where stairs are, or where the radius turns from the wall to the floor. The act of chipping out the are to set a staple into the curve means removing more concrete to set the staple into the wall. That is, unless you use a Corner Staple.
The patented design of Torque Lock Staples allows for that controlled compression, and the research and development team at Torque Lock took the potential further and designed 2 staples that address the needs to support concrete that cracks in corners. These are the 90 degree and 45 degree staples.
When chipping out the surface of the pool to lay in the staple, the 2 corner style staples follow the angle of the shell of the pool. This means less recess to insert the staple, and more concrete to support the compression of the staple. A stronger compression gives more support to the shell and the resistance to cracking is more secure, meaning less worry and less stress over both inserting the staple, and enjoying the pool for a lifetime after the job is done.
Torque Lock Corner Staple Kits come in 5-packs. Each kit includes 5 ninety degree, or 5 forty-five degree staples to use in areas where the cracks run through or across a corner in the shell. Installed the same way Torque Locks 3 and 6 inch staples are put into the shell, they guarantee the same compression and support as the tradition staples, with less effort to cut the area where repairs will be made.
When your crack runs through a corner and you’re ordering your staple set for repair, grab a set of corner staples and provide the best support a pool can get when making ferment repairs ons structural cracks.
