New rope connector makes connection fast and secure

GMP's Rope Connectors improve rope-to-rope or rope-to-swivel connections.

Trevose, Pa., August 12, 2010—General Machine Products Company Inc. (GMP) has introduced a new line of Rope Connectors to its extensive line of aerial and underground tools and equipment. Rope Connectors make the attachment of rope to rope or rope to swivels easier. All three of GMP's Rope Connectors are made from durable stainless steel. All Rope Connectors also offer a safety factor per load of 3:1 (horizontal pully only). GMP's Rope to Rope Connector can be used to join any two ropes with diameters of 0.875 inches (22 mm) or less. The Rope to Rope Connectors are designed to handle up to a 15,000 lbs. (6,804 kg) maximum load.

GMP's Rope to Swivel Connectors allow for rope and swivels to be attached to one another. The 0.5 inch (12.7 mm) Rope to Swivel Connector can handle a maximum load of 7,000 lbs. (6,804 kg), while the 0.66 inch connector can handle a maximum load of 15,000 lbs. (3,175 kg).

"Our Rope to Swivel Connectors are a great item because they do the job of two products in one" said GMP director of sales, Ted Clemens. "By allowing rope to directly connect to swivels we save on the amount of products contractors need to use."
