Carnie Cap 2" x 4"

Rebar Carnie Caps in size 2" x 4".  These unique rebar caps hold a 2x4 suspended above a line of rebar, eliminating the need to cap each rebar in a line. The lumber acts as the actual impalement protection. Can be used in horizontal, vertical and incline applications.

2" x 4" fits rebar sizes 10m - 30m

Product Features and Benefits

  • Protects workers from protruding rebar
  • Impalement protection
  • Visible yellow color
  • Fully tested and approved (OSHA #C-1721-AC)
  • Meets Cal OSHA max. drop test requirements
  • Complies with Cal OSHA, Section 1712


The Carnie Cap System is superior to any other rebar impalement protection available today. Unlike traditional rebar caps (which provide little or no impalement protection), the Carnie Cap System, when correctly installed, will withstand a 250 pound weight dropped from 10 feet without the rebar protruding.

The Carnie Cap is also less expensive than troughs. In fact, only two Carnie Caps are needed per each eight foot section. Plus, by eliminating injuries, installation time and inventory overhead, Carnie Caps not only protect workers, they can protect a company’s bottom line.

Carnie Caps can be used in vertical, inclined & horizontal applications, by placing a length of lumber between two Carnie Caps spaced at up to eight foot intervals along a line of exposed rebar.


  • Meets CAL-OSHA Construction Safety Orders Section #1712 on impalement protection from concrete reinforcing bars.
  • Meets OSHA standards for withstanding a 250 pound weight dropped from 7’6" without the rebar breaking through.
  • When force is applied to the Carnie Cap system, the impact is distributed evenly over the entire length of the lumber.


  • Economical.
  • Quick and easy to install.
  • Packaged 100 per box for additional savings.
  • Made of rugged, sturdy and reusable plastic.
  • Eliminates costs associated with injuries and downtime from rebar impalement.


  • Works in vertical, incline and horizontal applications.
  • Uses only 2 caps per each 8 foot span (or three caps per 16 foot span with a single 16' piece of lumber). In California, double the thickness of the lumber and space no greater than 4 feet apart.
  • Enables contractors to more efficiently use concrete blankets by utilizing the lumber as protective support so blankets don’t become torn.
