How Alligator Lacing Works

Alligator lacing utilizes a design with teeth that enter parallel to the length of the belt and imbed clear through the belt carcass. The teeth are formed so that when they are driven into the belt, the vital longitudinal carcass fibers are not severed.

Additional strength is obtained due to the connecting bar and because the fastener strip is one continuous piece. This 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 insures that there are no loose pieces to work themselves out of the belt and into the conveyed product. The straight splice obtained with a continuous strip of lacing also helps with hinge pin insertion.
