Klein® Tools Introduces Chicago® Grip - Coated Guy Wire

Unique jaw profile provides extra gripping power

November 24, 2014 (Lincolnshire, IL) – Klein Tools (http://www.kleintools.com), for professionals since 1857, is the first to introduce a wire grip designed specifically for use with both coated and galvanized guy wire.

The Chicago® Grip - Coated Guy Wire (1684-5C) features a unique sawtooth jaw profile that won't slip when used on coated or galvanized guy strand.  The longer 5" jaw also increases the surface area in contact with the cable which minimizes cable damage.  The Chicago® Grip - Coated Guy Wire is meant for use with cable sizes 0.16" (4.06 mm) to 0.55" (13.97 mm).

"Over time, the coating or galvanization can cause build-up on a typical grip jaw causing it to slip," says product manager Jocelyn Aguero.  "The sawtooth jaw profile on Klein's new coated guy wire grip prevents that build-up from happening thus reducing the risk of slippage."
