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.
Sizes of Tyler Tool Cable Grips
At E-Rigging, we carry the Tyler Tool brand of Cable Grips and we offer three different sizes.
Half ton which fits cable diameters 1/32 to 3/8
One ton which fits cable diameters 3/32 to 5/8
Two ton 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.
