This Chicago Grip is designed specifically to work with coated guy strand and EHS cable. Klein grips are made of drop-forged, quality US steel and heat treated for strength and durability. The chain, toggle and shackle keep the grip from falling off the cable. The 5-Inch jaw length increases the surface area contact with the cable minimizing cable damage. The sawtooth jaw profile resists galvanization build-up.
