What's the difference between big grips and tree grips? 
1 Answer
The most notable difference is that Big-Grips are much larger/longer than Tree-Grips.  We have also been advised by the mfg. that each should only be used for their prescribed application (Tree-Grips in trees, Big-Grips for tower guying, etc.).
