Designed specifically to test the strength of wire/terminal connections. The upper grip consists of a self-aligning wheel with nine equally spaced slots of various terminal shank sizes; an eccentrically mounted, self-tightening bottom grip secures the wire on the other end.
Odd shaped parts, punched samples or tension springs are easily secured and tested. Concave shape to pins assures centering under load. Throat clearance with pin is .5" (12.7 mm) and can easily accept samples up to .375" (9.65 mm) wide.
A unique figure 8 wrap of specimen assures a center break and non-locking pins permit quick installation and release. Throat and pin clearance is .375" (9.65 mm) wide with the throat width being .5" (1.7 mm)
Two capacities for lighter and heavier loads; spring-loaded jaws automatically close on the specimen and tighten as tension is applied. Ideal for testing wires, strip material and plastic tape or films.
