Applying Pulling Grips Safely A pulling grip is one of the key components of a jobsite wire pulling
system. All the components have to be chosen correctly to maintain
safety. If any component fails under tension- the grip, connectors,
sheaves, rollers and rope can whip around and injure nearby people or
equipment. Choosing set-ups that require less pulling tension are safer.
What is a Pulling Grip? Cable pulling grips are an essential component to install cable in
conduit. Installing wire in raceways requires a professional craftsman,
especially when it’s medium voltage, large size, or a long run. The
grips lock onto the cable and provide an attachment point for pulling
wire into a raceway.
