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.
fits cable diameters 1/32 to 3/8
fits cable diameters 3/32 to 5/8
which fits cable diameters 5/32 to 7/8
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.
We hope this information has answered any questions or concerns you might have about the use of cable grips.
