“Interlocking Cap” for CRACK-A-SLAB provides for expansion and contraction while forming a water resistant seal. Cap allows you to create and seal the joint all in one step!

CRACK-A-SLAB is manufactured from 20 guage galvanized steel and can be sold in custom lengths from 2ft to 25ft. When inserted into freshly placed concrete, CRACK-A-SLAB will insure that the slab cracks where you want it to!

(can be used with or without the cap)
