Comments Off on My cable is right on the edge of the size range, what do I do?
You should always choose the higher size range, for more strength. For instance, if your cable or hose is 28mm OD, then choose a 28-40mm grip rather than 19-28mm.
Comments Off on Can a cable grip or hose restraint be used as a lifting device?
No, never. Ever.
Comments Off on Can a cable grip be used as a permanent termination?
No, cable grips are not intended as permanent terminations, but double and offset eye grips with thimbles are suitable as permanent load sharing devices.
Comments Off on Can a cable grip be left attached overnight in the middle of a haul?
Absolutely not, NCG grips are not tested for slip when exposed to varying elements over extended periods of time. Attached grips should be checked as often as possible for damage and slip.
Comments Off on Standard, light duty, or heavy duty?
The load applied to the cable grip should be calculated by the operator, in order to select the correct grip for the job.
Comments Off on What is the safety factor for cable grips?
Our Working Load Limits are based on a safety factor of 3:1, as a general guide only. There is currently no Australian Standard for cable hauling stockings and each application should be judged on its own merits, by experienced operators.
