April 17, 2019


A vinyl siding tool that makes cutting j-channel for windows for much easier than tin-snips 

PFT Installation Expert Jared Lawrence explains how a j-channel notching tool can make your life on the jobsite a little easier.

  • For a drip edge, slide the notching tool into the j-channel and squeeze until you hear the tool click once and release.
  • For a complete notch slide the tool into the j-channel and squeeze until it clicks twice.

As you can see this tool provides a clean notch and is very easy to use.
