Safety products: Klein Tools is the first to introduce a wire grip designed specifically for use with both coated and galvanized guy wire.

The Chicago® Grip - Coated Guy Wire (1684-5C) features a unique sawtooth jaw profile that won’t slip when used on coated or galvanized guy strand. The longer 5” jaw also increases the surface area in contact with the cable, which minimizes cable damage. The Chicago® Grip - Coated Guy Wire is meant for use with cable sizes 0.16” (4.06 mm) to 0.55” (13.97 mm).

“Over time, the coating or galvanization can cause build-up on a typical grip jaw causing it to slip,” says product manager Jocelyn Aguero. “The sawtooth jaw profile on Klein’s new coated guy wire grip prevents that build-up from happening thus reducing the risk of slippage.”

Since 1857 Klein Tools, a family-owned and operated company, has been designing, developing and manufacturing premium-quality, professional-grade hand tools. The majority of Klein tools are manufactured in plants throughout the United States and are the number one choice among professional electricians and other tradespeople.
