NCCM  KwickSaddle®

KwickSaddle® system for attaching drag pads to slitting line tension boards.

KwickSaddle® is a tough plastic, covered with a gripper material which firmly secures most felts and carpets. When using KwickSaddles®, service centers have realized as much as 60% savings on tension pads and other labor costs. KwickSaddle® reduces labor, downtime, and wear on tension boards. The self-adhering gripper layer eliminates nails, staples, and mechanical fasteners. Your drag pad clings tightly during production, but releases easily for drag pad change-out.


• KWICKSADDLE® design reduces pad size

• Eliminates nailing or stapling of the pad to the tension board

• Improves board life due to absence of nailing

How does it work?

• Saddle is built to your board size

• Saddle is fastened to the board, ready for the tension pad

Will the kwickSaddle® fit my boards?

Yes! KwickSaddles® can be designed to fit any tension boards. Designs that are available are rectangular with 2 legs, chamfer with 2 legs, or flat.

Can I buy just the boards?

Yes! We can provide wooden boards made to any manufacturer’s specifications.

What board materials are available?
