Using the pulling grip isn’t hard at all. While the grip is extended you push the cable all the way to the knuckle and then as you retract it, it will begin to grip to fit the cable becoming tight. In the field some technicians take chicken wire and weave it through the pulling grip and then tape it with duct tape to provide better grip. This helps with some of the pulls that have more bends. Remember that each pull should never exceed 360˚, each bend adding up to 360.
We have four different kinds of pulling grips, each one designed for a specific job requirement. We have ene designed for light-duty (Junior Basket-Type), another for medium-duty(T-Basket-Type), and one for heavy-duty (K-Basket-Type) applications. Each one has a different style of mesh and a different weight limit.
