Cable Gripper Design
Within each cable gripper is a plunger that a cable slides through. There are three balls that
surround the outside diameter of the cable as it passes through the gripper. When weight is
applied to the gripper when mounted, the tension forces the balls to grab the cable in a pinching movement. In normal operation the more the tension, the more the gripping. Some grippers come
with a safety nut that locks the movement in both directions eliminating the potential for a release
if the plunger is accidentally depressed by an end user.
IF THIS IS THE FIRST TIME YOU’VE WORKED WITH 3-BALL AIRCRAFT CABLE
COMPRESSION SYSTEMS, PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING CAREFULLY.
When feeding cable into the Gripper, always allow it to pass at least 1” beyond the body of the Gripper.
When cutting off excess cable always leave at least 1” of cable showing. Cables may be cut using purpose-built cutters. Cable will not fray unless passed repeatedly through the Gripper mechanism or otherwise abused. To prevent fraying of freshly cut ends, re-solder or apply a drop of super-glue.
DO NOT FEED EXCESS CABLE INTO A LIGHTING FIXTURE HOUSING OR JUNCTION
BOX CONTAINING ELECTRICAL WIRING.
Use only 7×7 or 7×19 uncoated galvanized or stainless steel aircraft cable.
When installing threaded Grippers DO NOT OVER-TORQUE THE THREADS.
Finger-tighten only and wrench-tighten a quarter turn further, but no more.
The product is not recommended for outdoor use. It should not be exposed to water or wind,
or be allowed to oscillate continuously in any circumstance. Avoid placing fixtures close to HVAC
vents or in chemical-laden environments such as indoor swimming pools.
For more information please contact us.
WARNING: Do not place pendant fixtures in moving-air environments unless they are
laterally/seismically braced. Continuous oscillation may cause metal fatigue in the
cabling systems, leading to cable failure.
Grippers & couplers work best when cable follows their center line. Avoid angled pulls in excess of 5°.
For angled applications use one of our jointed grippers or our sloped ceiling couplers.
