Malco DS1 and DS2 Duct Stretchers are designed allow the installer to hold the duct in place with one hand while slipping a drive cleat in place with the other. The low profile straight body allows this tool go just about anywhere, even the tightest of quarters. Additional spacing holes allow the wheels to be adjusted to span greater distances. A rugged anodized aluminum body features large vinyl cushion grips and a handy hang-up hole. The DS2 model features a angled "offset" bend to move the handle away from the duct and eliminate knuckle contact!
The Malco DS3 Locking Duct Stretcher pulls duct sections together and locks them in place freeing up both hands to align and install drive cleats. The DS3 works from either side of a duct connection with no need to adjust the wheels! Simply place the wheels located on the movable cam on one side of the adjoining duct flanges, then turn the handle downward to pull the duct seams together and lock in place! Offset handle eliminates knuckle contact with the duct.

Malco Products, Inc. got its start in 1950 when a young steel supply salesman, Mark W.Keymer, decided to manufacture and market a pipe crimper he had invented for use in installing the "new" sheet metal ductwork used with forced air heating systems. More tools soon followed, including: the first hand seamer to employ compound leverage; a time saving hand notcher that made a V-shaped cut in one motion; and a hand operated, snap lock punch to complete the basic sheet metal tool set. Today Malco Products, Inc. is the nation's leading manufacturer of "tools of the trade" for HVAC (Heating, Ventilating and Air Conditioning) professionals. In 1975 Malco also created a vital specialty tool market for EXTERIOR REMODELING professionals (Installers of Roofing, Siding and Gutter) and holds the leadership position in that niche as well. Corporate headquarters and manufacturing facilities are located in Annandale, Minnesota, just outside the Minneapolis / St. Paul metroplex. Malco continues its founder's tradition of leadership and innovation by addressing a changing industry landscape and responding to emerging market needs for new specializations and more customized products and services.
