MBT couplers provide a cost-effective method of joining reinforcing bars, particularly when the fixed bar is already in place and there is insufficient space for bar rotation or swaging. The bars are supported within the coupler on two serrated saddles. Bars are locked in place by a series of special lockshear bolts, the heads of which shear off when the predetermined tightening torque is reached, providing a visual check of correct installation.
