How do you remove metal banding?
The tense straps spring outward when cut and the cuts create sharp edges. Place the jaws of duck-billed shears, tin snips or bolt cutters around the metal strapping. Turn your face away from the metal band and squeeze the jaws of the tool together until you feel the tension from the metal strapping relax.
