FIST GRIP WIRE ROPE CLIP (IMPORTED)

  • Bolts are an integral part of the saddle. Nuts can be installed in such a way as to enable the operator to swing the wrench in a full arc for fast installation.
  • All sizes have forged steel saddles.
  • Entire clip is Galvanized to resist corrosive and rusting action.
  • All Clips are individually bagged or tagged with proper application instructions and warning information.
  • Assembled with standard heavy hex nuts.

  • All sizes have forged steel saddles.
  • All Clips are individually bagged or tagged with proper application instructions and warning information.

Importantly, these wire rope clips meet other critical performance requirements including fatigue life, impact properties and material traceability, not addressed by ASME B30.26.
Assembled with standard heavy hex nuts.

 

     WARNING
  • Failure to read, understand, and follow these instructions may cause death or serious injury.
  • Read and understand these instructions before using clips.
  • Match the same size clip to the same size wire rope.
  • Do not mismatch Crosby clips with other manufacturers clips
  • Prepare wire rope end termination only as instructed.
  • Do not use with plastic coated wire rope.
  • Apply first load to test the assembly.
    This load should be of equal or greater weight than loads expected
    in use.  Next, check and retighten nuts to recommended torque
    (See Table 1, this page).

Installation Instructions

Step 1.  Refer to Table 1 (below left) in following these instructions.  Turn back specified amount of rope from thimble or loop.  Apply first clip one base width from dead end of rope.  Tighten nuts evenly, alternate from one nut to the other until reaching the recommended torque.

Step 2.  When two clips are required, apply the second clip as near the loop or thimble as possible. Tighten nuts evenly, alternating until reaching the recommended torque.  When more than two clips are required, apply the second clip as near the loop or thimble as possible, turn nuts on second clip firmly, but do not tighten.  Proceed to Step 3.
Step 3.  When three or more clips are required, space additional clips equally between first two - take up rope slack - tighten nuts on each Fist Grip evenly, alternating from one nut to the other until reaching recommended torque.
Figure 4.  If a pulley (Sheave) is used, in place of a thimble add one additional Fist Grip.  Fist Grip spacing should be as shown.
Wire Rope Splicing Procedures:
Figure 5.  The preferred method of splicing two wire ropes together is to use interlocking turnback eyes with himbles, using the recommended number of clips on each eye (See Figure 1).
Figure 6.  An alternate method is to use twice the number of clips as used for a turnback termination. The rope ends are placed parallel to each other, overlapping by twice the turnback amount shown in the application instructions.  The minimum number of clips should be installed on each dead end (See
Figure 2).  Spacing, installation torque, and other instructions still apply.
IMPORTANT
Apply first load to test the assembly.  This load should be of equal or greater weight than loads expected in use.
Next, check and retighten nuts to recommended torque.

In accordance with good rigging and maintenance practices, the wire rope end termination should be inspected periodically for wear, abuse, and general adequacy.

If a pulley (sheave) is used for turning back the wire rope, add one additional clip. See Figure 4.
If a greater number of clips are used than show in the table, the amount of turnback should be increased proportionately.
* The tightening torque values shown are based upon the
threads being clean, dry, and free of lubrication.
Critical Application Information
Efficiency ratings for wire rope end terminations are based upon the catalog breaking strength of wire rope.  The efficiency rating of a properly prepared loop or thimble eye termination for clip sizes 1/8" through 7/8" is 80%. For sizes 1" thru 3-1/2" it is 90%.
The number of clips shown (see Table 1 ) is based upon using RRL or RLL wire rope, 6 x 19 or 6 x 37 Class, FC or IWRC; IPS or XIP.  If Seale construction or similar large outer wire type construction in the
6 x 19 Class is to be used for sizes 1 inch and larger, add one additional clip.  If a pulley (sheave) is used for turning back the wire rope, add one additional clip.
The number of clips shown also applies to rotation - resistant RRL wire rope, 8 x 19 Class, IPS, XIP, sizes 1-1/2 inch and smaller; and to rotation-resistant RRL wire rope, 19 x 7 Class, IPS, XIP, sizes 1-1/2 inch and smaller.
For other classes of wire rope not mentioned above, we recommend contacting Adventure Rope Gear
(520) 896-2007 to ensure the desired efficiency rating.
 The style wire rope termination used for any application is the obligation of the user.
