MBL 5 x WLL NOTE There are many types of specifications of wire rope, each having different strengths and characteristics. The lockable wire rope grip was designed to take this into account and to be stronger than the rope. Each lockable wire rope grip clearly states the minimum breaking load and a working load limit at 1/5 of the MBL for complete safety. After assembly the lockable gripple simply works by tightening the ingenious locking screws to prevent any movement of the wedges and firmly secures the wire rope in place.
The gripple tensioning tool is required to release the gripple after assembly, this is only available for sizes 3mm to 6mm. The gripple tensioning tool can can also be used to generate up to 300kg of load, ideal for tensioning after the initial installation or carrying out repairs and maintenance.
