Pulling Grips offer excellent means of pulling electrical cable, bare conductors, copper telephone cable or rope through conduit. Grips are made of high-quality galvanized steel strand to assure long life. Under normal conditions, the grips should be used with a safety factor of five, but this will vary depending on the situation. The tension, diameter, movement, number of objects gripped, gripping surface and the attachments used are some of the variables affecting the safety factor. In addition, the effects of abrasion, corrosion, prior use or misuse must be considered and the grip replaced when necessary. The safety factor is ultimately determined by the user.
Fiber Optic Pulling Grips are also available. They feature a special weave that provides positive holding power while allowing the grip to remain flexible, ensuring cable protection. Additional sizes & support grips are available, please contact Condux Customer Service for assistance.
Select The Correct Grip
Each grip is designed to work on a specific range of cable diameters.
- Step 1: Determine your cable outside diameter
- Step 2: Find the grip size that encompasses your cable diameter
- Step 3: Whenever possible, use a closed mesh that assembles over the cable end. If the cable end is not available, use a split mesh
- Step 4: Where available, select an eye style that suits your needs.
- Step 5: Estimate the tension to be put on the grip, establish the working load you require and compare this to the listed approximate breaking strength of the grip to ensure that the grip will be strong enough.
