These are some of the most basic cable pulling equipment: 

  • Pulling grips

This is one of the most commonly used cable pulling tool that you will find. Mostly used for removing or installing cables in the ducts and conduits. Pulling grips are great for reducing the chances of arc bend, strain on the conductors and potential kinking. This device is mainly used for removing all snagging chances.

  • Support Grips

The support grips work best for supporting and holding the weight of immobile and flexible cables in a slanting run. Unlike other grips, these remain in the same position once they are fixed in for operation. This helps in distributing the total weight of the run evenly over the cable reducing the chances of breakage. They can absorb shock resulted by vibration or movement.

  • Strain Relief Grips

These are great for vibration absorption and controlling the arc of bend. Mostly used for pre-bending the cable and pulling out the electrical cords, which have been damaged.

  • Optical fiber grips

These are great for travelling as they are light in weight, super easy to use, easily adjustable, non-corrosive and can be fixed in case the cable breaks.
