• For hooks used in frequent load cycles or pulsating loads, the hook and threads should be periodically inspected by Magnetic Particle or Dye Penetrant. (Note: Some disassembly may be required.)
• Never use a hook whose throat opening has been increased, or whose tip has been bent more than 10 degrees out of plane from the hook body, or is in any other way distorted or bent. Note: A latch will not work properly on a hook with a bent or worn tip.
• Never use a hook that is worn beyond its limits.
• Remove from service any hook with a crack, nick, or gouge. Hooks with a crack, nick, or gouge shall be repaired by grinding lengthwise, following the contour of the hook, provided that the reduced dimension is within its limits.
• Never repair, alter, rework, or reshape a hook by welding, heating, burning, or bending.
• Never side load, back load, or tip load a hook.
• Eye hooks, shank hooks and swivel hooks are designed to be used with wire rope or chain. Efficiency of assembly may be reduced when used with synthetic material.
• Do not swivel the S-322 swivel hook while it is supporting a load.
• The use of a latch may be mandatory by regulations or safety codes; e.g., OSHA, MSHA, ANSI/ASME B30, Insurance, etc. (Note: When using latches, see instructions in “Understanding: The Crosby GroupWarnings” for further information.)
• Always make sure the hook supports the load. The latch must never support the load.
• When placing two (2) sling legs in hook, make sure the angle from the vertical to the outermost leg is not greater than 45 degrees, and the included angle between the legs does not exceed 90 degrees*.
• See ANSI/ASME B30.10 “Hooks” for additional information.
* For angles greater than 90 degrees, or more than (2) legs, a master link or bolt type anchor shackle should be used to attach the legs of the sling to the hook.

WIRE ROPE GRIPS
Klein Tools, Inc.
Grips for PVC-Covered Conductors
Inside Jaw Contour
The serpentine jaws of this grip series are specially machined to allow insertion of insulated conductor through the jaws, which reduces danger of slippage which might result in insulation damage. Eliminates necessity of stripping insulation from conductor.

WIRE ROPE GRIPS
Klein Tools, Inc.
Klein “Haven” Grips
Designed for use when light, compact grip is desired and where conductor damage is not a factor. Gripping pressure of the knurled jaw is applied to 1/4” (6.35 mm) cable area.
WIRE ROPE GRIPS
Lewis Mfg. Co.
Model J Double Weave — 6 3/4” to 8”
Lewis Snake Grips
The Lewis Snake Grip expands or contracts to grip different or identical cable and/or rope sizes as per the customer’s needs.
SAVE time stringing up, changing and unstringing because the snake requires no special tools. The swivel and swing link go smoothly through blocks and prevent line twisting.
INSTALL new cable by using old existing cable as pulling line. Always seize the ends of the grips by banding or taping.

WIRE ROPE GRIPS
Lewis Mfg. Co.
The XS, X, and X-HDFE were designed to simplify the process of selecting a pulling grip. The entire X series is unique for several reasons:
1. X model grips can be used overhead or for underground pulls.
2. X model grips incorporate a single wire bail which, when put under pressure, conforms to even the tightest clearances. The single wire bail also connects easily with either ball bearing swivels or drop forged friction swivels.
3. The reverse weave of all X models insures that the grip and cable will pass smoothly through even the tightest blocks, sheaves, bullwheels, etc.
4. The X and X Heavy Duty feature metal shoulders installed beneath the bail. These shoulders allow the grip to be pulled through the most abrasive conduit or other rough environments, and still be used time after time. These shoulders are color coded to ensure the correct grip size is selected when making a pull.
The X-Series Grips are color coded for quick identification and organized storage. They are plastic-coated which increases the life of the grip, provides a more effective gripping surface, and reduces injuries due to frayed or mangled wire in the pulling grip itself.
This grip is designed with the ball bearing swivel user in mind. The single wire eye allows a swivel to be attached to the grip easily, and helps to alleviate any binding that may occur in the throat of the swivel during a pull. The X model grip also offers a backwards weave that (1) adds pulling surface to the grip itself, and (2) allows the grip to pass through even the tightest of clearances. The X series features metal sleeves near the top of the grip to eliminate wear when pulling through clay conduit, gravel, or other abrasive pulling environments. This series is constructed with galvanized wire, but can be ordered with stainless steel at additional cost.

WIRE ROPE GRIPS
XS-Series Grip
These grips feature coated galvanized cable, reverse weave, and a single wire bail but will not have metal shoulders. XS series grip are identified by tags beneath the heavy duty clear tubing. The XS series is designed for normal working conditions.
Heavy Duty X Model Grip
These grips are designed for large work loads and rugged conditions. The following heavy duty X models incorporate the use of exceptionally strong mesh, reverse weave, single wire bail and abrasion-resistant metal shoulders. Heavy Duty X models are constructed of uncoated aircraft strand galvanized wire.
