The GRABB-IT* Cable Splice will splice and re-tension broken or damaged p.c. strand in both bonded and unbonded conditions. Applying tension to the cables is accomplished by screwing the GRABB-IT* turnbuckle in after the end anchors have been locked on to the strand. This will give you a maximum of 5-1/4″ of elongation.
The force on the cable can be measured by either a strain gauge or torque wrench.
With a minimum of 1-1/2″ of thread engagement, the GRABB-IT* will meet and exceed the design strength of the strand (laboratory test results available).
All GRABB-IT* Cable Splice units are zinc chromate plated to ASTM B-633, type 3 to provide corrosion resistance.
The GRABB-IT* is available for most standard sizes of strand, 3/8″, 7/16″, 1/2″.
