FinCap_5MAKO Driver

The MAKO Driver quickly and accurately allows one person to set multiple screed or structural element support locations in seconds. The patented Driver is designed to set the FinCap and screed pipe to the finished elevation of concrete by aligning the marker with a string line or laser.

Once the top of the marker aligns with the string line the FinCap has been set to the proper height and a screed rail is set on top of the FinCap screed support locations and you are ready to pour.

The Driver is made of impact resistant resin. The hand guard protects the contractor when setting locations.

FinCap

The patented, non-metallic MAKO FinCap fits mounting structures from 3/8″ (10 mm) to 5/8″ (16 mm) making it the most versatile screed support chair available.Fins1_600 It will not bounce off your mounting structure because the “fins” inside hug whatever it is mounted to!

The FinCap supports a nominal 1-1/2″ (40 mm) – schedule 40 or higher – galvanized pipe (1.5″ ID/1.9″ OD).  The FinCaps are virtually indestructible and have a 100% no breakage money back guarantee that they will not break, snap or crush under a screed during normal placement conditions.
