"Chicago" Grips

Klein grips offer total wire and cable-pulling capability for the power utility, telecommunication and many other industries.

Klein "Chicago" and "Haven" Grips are widely used in the power, communications and general construction fields to pull wire and cable, and to maintain temporary tension until it can be permanently terminated. These grips are to be used for pulling up lines to tension only and are not to be used as anchors.

Klein has designed and built standard and custom grips of outstanding quality since 1885. They are proven dependable. Our complete line includes a type and size for every application.

There is a Klein grip for virtually every type of wire and cable, including:

  • Extra-high-strength cables, messenger, guy strand and conductors.
  • Bare wire.
  • Large-diameter conductors.
  • Bare A.C.S.R., aluminum and stranded-copper cables.
  • PVC-covered conductors.
  • Weatherproof wire.
  • Telephone cable.
Chicago Grips diagram
Klein "Chicago" Grips have locking loop handles, standard on most grips and available on hot-line grips by ordering with spring. The locking feature allows the jaws to be held in an open position for easier placement on wire or cable. Saves substantial time, makes grip positioning easier than with wedge or bolt-on designs. To lock, open jaws and fold loop handle toward the side plates.

How to Select the Proper Grip

  • A family of grips for cable sizes from .12" (3.10 mm) to 1.0" (25.4 mm).
  • Double "V" grooves give four-point contact, reducing chance of slipping and providing proper alignment.
  • For larger conductors, see our grips with Round Inside-Jaw Contour.
