The most common method to install a wire rope. The type of cable grip depends
on the rope type and construction.
Non-rotating rope must be installed with a swivel between old and new ropes.
The old rope may have developed torque during it’s working life and
we must ensure that this torque is not transferred to the new rope.
Python® types Multi and Super 8 may be installed with a swivel. In fact,
if you have to change either of these constructions for a 6-strand rope,
particularly when this rope has a different lay direction, a swivel is of
Python®-HS 9 and Python® Ultra must not be installed with a swivel.
Doing so will unlay the rope and damage it beyond repair. Use two cable
grips and connect them with an auxiliary cable.
When using cable grips, the end of the grips have to be tightly seized
on to the rope body to prevent accidental slip-out of the rope. Alternately,
you may wrap the grip end with a strong reinforced industrial strength
