    Strong Grip, well made. A bit hard to load, but easier than tape. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- This works like the toys often called "Chinese finger traps." Once expanded, something can be inserted and once tightened the grip gets tighter when an item pulls against it. The label says it will hold 100 lbs. I tried it with 14/3 UF-B wire and a 35lb dumbbell attached (see photo) and it had no problem holding the wire with the dumbbell attached! The challenge with it is loading the wire. I found that same 14/3 would catch a bit on the way in. Also, if you want to load two 14/3 in, it is possible but even more effort. Still, it is faster and probably more secure than using electrical tape.

    The Southwire ½ inch wire pull will easily pull wire between wall stud and or through 2” x 4” top plate inside wall in existing constructed homes. In the past, I had to create a loop with the Romax wire to tie the pull string to the wire. That doubled the width of the wire to start pulling thru the top plate and another on the cross bracing to get the wire down to the lower level of the wall. By using the wire pulling grip that initial loop is not required and the subsequent holes can be smaller to pass the wire thru to its final location.

    Probably best for cables near ½ inch in diameter. It worked for a short straight pull of RG6 coaxial cable, but that was a relatively easy pull that didn’t require a lot of force. The cable stayed in the grip during the pull. However, before I pulled the wire through the conduit, I gave it a good tug, and it wasn’t all that hard to pull the cable right out of the grip. If I had to pull the cable farther or around corners or anything that might take even a little more pulling force, I would add some tape where at the end of the grip and on the cable. I also experimented with a reel of 18AWG Low Voltage LED Cable 2 Conductor Jacketed in-Wall Speaker Wire UL/cUL Class 2 that I had in the garage. This cable is too small for this pulling grip; it slips right out. Unfortunately, Southwire doesn’t seem to make any smaller grips. I would not recommend purchasing this grip if you are pulling small cables like 2/18AWG speaker wire. However, because I already purchased this grip, if I was pulling speaker wire, I would probably use it with a lot of tape. Taping the cable to this grip is easier and more effective than taping the cable directly to the fish tape. I couldn’t find any instructions for using this grip so I will include some photos showing how I got the hook onto my fish tape and how I loaded the cable into the grip. ATTACHING THE HOOK: I used a ⅛” fish tape which fills up the hook so that it is hard to close. I found that it works best to move the fish tape all the way up into the hook as far from the grip as possible before closing the clip. Otherwise, the tape gets in the way making it impossible to close the hook (see photos). INSERTING YOUR CABLE: Also, you will want to load your cable as far into the grip as possible. You can do this by pushing the loops at the end of the grip toward the hook end. This will force the wires in the grip to bulge outward providing plenty of room to slide the cable all the way in. After you release the pressure on the loops, you can slide your fingers along the outside to entice the loops to return to their original, smaller diameter position.

    This Southwire pulling grip is just what I needed to replace the hanger with a hook on the end I was using! It does not get hung up going through the wall like a hook. It goes through smoother and cleaner. Seems to he strong and well made. Inexpensive tool to have around for sure. Takes different size wires as you can see from the way it is tapered.

    Save money by not damaging cable end
    First time I installed camera system, I ended up ruining cable ends. Replacing now years later, and remembered this and thought, some smart guy must have figured out a way to pull a cable end through a hole without damaging it. This is it. Coaxial end fits snugly in, holds it as it's pulled through the wall, works great, no damage.

    Use a different method of attaching if you want it to make it through.
    The top clamp broke when i was halfway through the conduit.

    Slips off to easily, Not good for corners or long pulls. Not good from multi wires not much better for single wire. I personally wouldn't recommend it for any one.
