Gripples are an easy way to join or tension wire. The new Gripple Plus has a patented ceramic locking mechanism to deliver better grip and higher load strength. The ceramic mechanism locks onto the wire, resulting in a bond that lasts season after season. The ceramic rollers are rock-hard and super-tough to deal with extremely hard high-tensile wires.
Simply push wire or cable into the ends, leaving at least a two inch tail to allow for easy adjustment or re-tensioning. Once in position, serrated rollers grip the wire as soon as reverse tension is applied.
The small Gripples are for use with 17 to 13 gauge mild wire. A torque tool (TGTTP) is available for applications where high tensions are required.
