FeaturesFinding the best grip to pull small copper can be challenging. Copper stretches over time becoming too thin for some grips which may cause slippage. Some smaller grips are harder to manipulate when wearing rubber gloves and are not hot latch compatible. Using a grip that's too big, too strong or too aggressive could damage the cable. Klein Tools' 1613 Series Bare Wire Chicago Grip is big enough to work with gloves but small enough to pull #6 and #8 copper without damaging it. It's just right for the job.
Max Safe Load of 4500-Pound (2100 kg)
Locking loop handles allow the jaws to be held in an open position for easy placement on wire or cable
Single ''V'' groove jaw contour
Hot latch version available (1613-35H)
Klein Tools is the result of one of those “happy accidents” that turn out to be revolutionary. Klein Tools famously got their start in 1857 when a linesman came to founder Matthias Klein to repair his broken pliers. Klein replaced the broken half and when the old half of the tool broke too, Klein forged a replacement for that, thus making the first Klein Linesman pliers. Since these humble beginnings, Klein Tools has grown and become one of the largest American made toolmakers and they’re a brand used by tradesmen, linesman and electricians all across America.
