The palm hole-punch from DIG can be used to punch holes on any size drip tubing for the insertion of drip emitters, micro sprinklers, 1/4" barbs and 10/32 threaded barbs. The handle is made of UV-resistant, high impact plastic. The punch creates just the right sized hole in the drip tubing. This punch removes the residual debris formed as it punches a hole in the drip tubing. We recommend cleaning the punch every few holes to make sure that the material does not accumulate inside the metal pin. The main advantage of removing the waste material as you punch is to protect the drip emitters from plastic debris that can, over time, plug the drip emitters. Use a paper clip to remove the debris. This tools is not recommended to use with large amount of drip emitters.
