Offset-Eye Cable Stockings

Cable stockings are an effective means of handling cable that needs to be pulled, attached or secured. (They are also known as cable grips, cable pullers, cable socks, wire rope pulling grips, woven grips or Chinese finger grips.)

Tubular woven covering – ‘open’ design with offset eye at one end.

Can be fitted any distance from the end of the cable and is designed so cable can be passed clear through.

Applications – mining, industrial, maritime, e.g. support for electrical cable and hoses (hydraulic and other), strain relief on trailing supply lines.

Note: This cable stocking needs to be fitted prior to any bulky terminations being attached to the hose or cable and it can not be removed once these are applied. Should always be fitted with a thimbled eye to prevent chafing at the load bearing point as it is a permanent component.

We cater for both:

  • standard size cable stockings – to suit cable diameters from 6mm to 120mm; and
  • special orders – where we manufacture specific sized stockings for your individual needs as required.
