Proper use of Fist-Grip Clips
  1. Refer to the illustration below when following these instructions. Turn back specified amounts of rope from thimble or loop. Apply first clip one base width from dead end of rope. Tighten nuts evenly, alternating from one nut to the other until reaching the recommended torque.
  2. When two clips are required, apply the second clip as near the loop or thimble as possible. Tighten nuts evenly, alternating until reaching the recommended torque. When more than two clips are required, apply the second clip as near the loop or thimble as possible and turn nuts on second clip firmly, but do not tighten. Proceed to step 3.
  3. When three of more clips are required, space additional clips between the first two and take up rope slack. Then tighten nuts on all clips, alternating from one nut to the other until reaching the recommended torque.
  4. Apply an initial load equal to loads expected in use. Inspect for proper spacing and retighten the nuts to the recommended torque.

How can you tell if it is time to replace the clamp?
2 Answers
We are not aware of any specific inspection criteria provided by Crosby, but here are some things to look out for.

1) Be sure the clamp is not damaged, deformed, twisted, cracked or otherwise in a degraded condition.

2) The two halves should mate together freely without intervention.

3) Verify the threads are in good shape and the nuts thread easily.

4) Check the saddle to ensure there are still grooves, which are required to help the clamp bite into the wire rope.

More information (including proper instruction) can be had by watching the video on the item page, or by clicking on the PDF link in the Attachments tab.

We cannot find specific inspection criteria from Crosby, but here are some things to look for.

1) Check for any damage including cracks, twisting, deep gouges, extreme corrosion, etc.

2) The two halves should mate together easily and freely without intervention.

3) The nuts should thread onto the bolts cleanly--make sure the threads are in good shape.

4) The saddles should still have their grooves, as this texturing is important to help the clamps bite into the cable.

While this is not an exhaustive list, it should help your overall inspection efforts. More data can be found on the item page by watching the video and/or viewing the PDF on the Attachments tab.
