FeaturesDesigned for use on aluminum, copper, weatherproof coated wire, PVC covered conductors and messenger and guy strand. The Chicago style grip was designed for cable sizes from 0.218-Inch to 0.55-Inch (5.54 to 13.97 mm). When pulling EHS (extra-high-strength) galvanized-steel cable, the galvanizing has a tendency to coat the jaws of any grip, causing the cable to slip. Double ''V'' contour reduces the possibility of slippage and damage to the cable.
Double ''V'' grooves give four-point contact, reducing chance of slipping and providing proper alignment of wire and cable
For larger conductors, see our grips with round inside-jaw contour
Manufactured from drop-forged, heat-treated steel for excellent durability
Maximum Safe Load: 8000 lb (3629 kg)
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.
