How to Use Tyler Tool Cable Grips

Posted by Beth Smith on 2/23/2018 to How To...
Cable grips are used to temporarily pull tension on a cable or rope when you need more pulling force than can be done by hand. They can be temporarily clamped onto a cable at any point allowing the cable to be tensioned and fastened to another product for a permanent connection.
Watch our video above or "Read More" for a text and picture version on how to use cable grips.

Cable grips are mechanical devices that consist of a handle and a set of grooved and serrated jaws that can easily be opened and closed onto a length of cable.

At E-Rigging, we carry the Tyler Tool brand of Cable Grips and we offer three different sizes.
Half Ton Tyler Tool Cable Grip
Half ton which fits cable diameters 1/32 to 3/8

One Ton Tyler Tool Cable Grip
One ton which fits cable diameters 3/32 to 5/8

Two Ton Tyler Tool Cable Grip
Two ton which fits cable diameters 5/32 to 7/8

One Ton and Two Ton Tyler Tool Cable Grip
Apart from size, the only difference between the three is that sizes one ton and two ton feature a small side plate to prevent the cable from falling out of the grip.

The eye on the cable grip handle serves as an attachment point for mechanical pulling devices, such as a cable puller or lever hoist.

As the handle is pulled, the jaws tighten around the cable and allow the cable to be temporarily tensioned and then, fastened to another product for a permanent connection.
