Hoisting grips allow vertical cable runs to be made in a safe, reliable manner. This makes them particularly useful for cell site installation. PCTEL’s hoisting grips are available in either pre-laced or lace-up styles. Pre-laced style hoist grips use a closed-mesh assembly that can quickly be slipped over the end of an un-terminated cable. The mesh tightens as the cable is pulled, providing a safe, secure gripping point. PCTEL’s pre-laced hoisting grips include a round member clamp to help secure the grip to the cable. Our lace-up style hoist grips use an open-mesh assembly closed by a length of lacing wire. Unlike pre-laced grips, lace-up style grips can be affixed anywhere along the length of a transmission line. This is especially useful for very long lines which require multiple support points.
