Gripples are an easy way to join or tension wire. The new Gripple Plus has a patented ceramic locking mechanism to deliver better grip and higher load strength. The ceramic mechanism locks onto the wire, resulting in a bond that lasts season after season. The ceramic rollers are rock-hard and super-tough to deal with extremely hard high-tensile wires. Simply push the wire or cable into the ends, leaving at least a 2" tail to allow for easy adjustment or re-tensioning. Once in position, serrated rollers grip the wire as soon as reverse tension is applied. The medium Gripples can be used on 10 to 14 gauge smooth wire and 15½ gauge barbed wire. A torque tool (FTT) is available for applications where high tensions are required.
