c. WIRE/CABLE GRIPPERS
The cables of all three winch assemblies are terminated with the same type wire/cable gripper. The grippers contain
jaws which physically clamp onto a mating cable with increased force as tension is applied.
Pull back pivoting jaw and insert mating cable in between pivoting and fixed jaw.
Allow pivoting jaw to clamp down on mating cable.
Apply slight tension to mating cable to cause jaws to securely grip mating cable.
d. ROPE TENSIONERS
Tower guys are rope or a combination of steel and rope with the rope end securing to the ground anchor. Each guy
has a self-locking rope tensioner at the end for connection to an anchor using a shackle.
