Its unique, patented cold‐nozzle technology, prevents burns, and the nozzle can safely be rotated with bare hands. Its smart design has a trigger, which incorporates an Allen wrench to unscrew the body, enabling easy maintenance of the gun. The Ripack 3000 igniter can be easily replaced without tools in less than a minute.  The ergonomic bi‐material handle also makes for a more comfortable, improved grip.
