Klein Chicago Grip for High Strength Cables 0.218-Inch

This Klein Chicago grip is designed for use on aluminum, copper, weatherproof coated wire, PVC covered conductors, and messenger and guy strand. The Chicago style grip was designed for cable sizes from 0.218-Inch to 0.55-Inch (5.54 to 13.97 mm). When pulling EHS (extra-high-strength) galvanized-steel cable, the galvanizing has a tendency to coat the jaws of any grip, causing the cable to slip. Double ”V” contour reduces the possibility of slippage and damage to the cable.  Contact us at Tallman for any questions you may have or for more information.


  • Designed for cable sizes from 0.218-Inch to 0.55-Inch (5.54 to 13.97 mm)
  • Double ''V'' grooves give four-point contact, reducing the chance of slipping and providing proper alignment of wire and cable
  • For larger conductors, see our grips with round inside-jaw contour
  • Manufactured from drop-forged, heat-treated steel for excellent durability
