ADJUST-A-GRIP® DEADEND GRIPS
FOR ANCHOR ATTACHMENT OF GUY STRAND


Serving Sleeve

Quick and easy to install. No special tools, eyes pins, thimbles. Retensioning up to 18 inches at ground level without removal.

By design, each size is rated to hold more than the rated breaking strength of the guy strand it fits (see tables below).

Vandal resistant: With rod subsets unwrapped, wedge and socket assembly retains a substantial percentage of strand strength rating. For proper deadend performance, guy tension should be at least 5% of strength rating at time of structure erection and at least 10% after final tensioning.

For use on galvanized strand not made per ASTM A475 or aluminumcoated strand not per A474 and/or B416, consult Factory. See dimensions and hardware recommendations below.

†Serving sleeves are required on adjustable Adjust-A-Grip deadend grips when used on structures of 200 ft. and taller.

Measuring Guy Tension To Load-Nut Torque

Guy tensions may be closely approximated by measuring the torque on the U-Bolt load nuts. For accurate results, the U-Bolt thread and nut must be lubricated with an anti-seize compound, (a commercially available one is called, "Never-Seez").

To use these charts, go first to the correct bolt size chart then select the desired tension on the vertical scale and move across the chart to the intersect line, read the torque required from the horizontal scale.
