For Suspension Strand, Guy Strand and Static Wire. Used to terminate aerial support strand messenger, and at the top and bottom ends of down guys. All-Grades Automatic strand deadend is for those 7-wire strands and solid wires identified by name brands, coatings, types of steel, and within diameter ranges listed, but not 3-wire strand and not Alumnoweld. Recommended use on Galvanized zinc coated, Aluminized, and Bethalume.
Application: • For deadend applications with overhead or down guy wire • “Universal Grade” are recommended for use with Alumoweld, Aluminized, EHS and Galvanized Steel • “All Grades” are recommended for use on Common Grade, Siemens-Martin, High Strength Utility Grade, Galvanized and Aluminized steel strand
- Accommodates a wide wire range
- Can hold a minimum of 90% RBMs
- Can be used with different steel strands
- Simple design for easy and fast installation

1.Place the anchor bail around the anchor eye and squeeze the bail legs together to slip
the yoke over the bail ends. See FIG 1
2. Install the LONG installation bail into the outer ears of the yoke and connect the chain
hoist hook. See FIG 2
3. Attach the chain hoist onto the guy wire and apply tension to remove slack on the guy wire.
4. Install the gripping unit by inserting through the yoke. **Do not remove the colored plug** See FIG 3
5.After inserting the gripping unit through the yoke, twist the gripping unit, until the gripping unit
“bubble” is facing outward, to lock it in the yoke. See FIG 3b
6.To ensure proper installation and long term performance ensure the ends are clean cut, free of
burrs, and are not frayed; cable should be straight and inlay (no bends, kinks, or curves)
7.Insert guy wire ensuring all strands enter the pilot cup, then push guy wire through the gripping
unit until it displaces the colored plugand exits the gripping unit. See FIG 4
8.Guide the wire to clear the anchor eye. See FIGURE 4b
9.Finish installation by adjusting the guy wire to the desired tension.
10. Visually inspect installation and remove hoist. See FIGURE 5
