Some factory radiators may come with aluminum or copper straps around the core of the unit. These are support straps that are part of a manufacturing technique to increase the core strength of the radiator unit.
Do not attempt to cut or remove these straps. Leave as is and install.
Do not confuse these straps with zip tie and or plastic wraps to keep a radiator in its packaging. These straps are clearly part of the radiator unit.
