One of the most recurring questions from customers is about the real needs and the Rubber Anchor Band’s measures for their crops.

When in a budget you read the following: Anchor Rubber Band No. 3, No. 5, No. 8, etc… What do all these denominations really mean?

It is important to know how to measure an Anchor Rubber Band and to which numerical denomination it corresponds. As this information is essential in the moment to be able to determine correctly the real needs. While we do not have this information, it could happen that you buy a rubber that does not correspond to its true dimension: it measures less, weighs less and, therefore, it appears to be cheaper, but in reality it is not adequate for our needs.

To be able to compare prices correctly, you have to know exactly what size you need, because it may be the case that you are buying the rubber no. 8 from manufacturer X but it actually measures 7 cm. The dimension of the rubber greatly influences its unit weight, and, therefore, its price. In this article, we will clearly teach you how to correctly measure the Rubber Anchor Band.

Will the number correspond to the length of the rubber band in centimeters?

Many customers have doubts in the moment of size choosing. In reality, it is not difficult at all to measure well the Anchor Rubber Band, but not everyone knows how to do it and then the mischief can arise that you buy a rubber band that does not correspond to its real size in order to try to make it look cheaper. Here in our video we teach you how to measure correctly the Anchor Rubber Band. Nothing more is needed than to have a graduated ruler and to support the Anchor Rubber Band to the “0” point of the ruler where the anchor part ends, then to put the rubber walls together so that there is no space between them. This distance that you see between the two rubber’s ends is exactly the length’s size. Now, let’s imagine that the result is 8 centimeters. What number of the rubber should you order, so? It is obvious: in this case you need the Anchor Rubber Band number 8. Definitely, the length in centimeters corresponds to the number of the denomination.

Another important Rubber Anchor Band’s measure that you should know how to measure is the rubber’s “width”. The same rubber’s length’s size can have different widths. The greater the width is, the greater the rubber’s grip and force are. In our picture we show you how to measure it. It is true that the rubber’s width, because it is a small and narrow measure, is more difficult to measure correctly only with a simple graduated ruler and it is done with greater precision in the production itself, instead of the length which is quite easy to identify without errors.
