Poly-Dacron Rope
Poly-Dacron Rope
Chance Poly-Dacron Rope is a three-strand flexible combination of synthetic fibers. Its excel lent dielectric properties, and high resistance to mildew, rot and chemical damage make it an excellent handline rope. While the PD can satisfactorily be used on capstans, it should have one or two more wraps than manila: PD works fine in sliding hitches. Although PD offers greater tensile strength than manila, it is recommended that natural fiber rope be replaced with same size synthetic rope for workman handling ease and confidence. Also, a wider cross-section proves better in withstanding accidental transverse cutting or severe spot abrasion. The size-for-size substitution makes it possible to benefit more fully from the strength and economy of synthetic ropes. NOTE: While the fibers are resistant to moisture absorption, water can be trapped between strands as with any braided rope.

Poly-Dacron Rope
Chance Polypropylene Rope was selected for its strength, light weight and resistance to moisture. Water accumulation on the surface can be readily removed by shaking vigorously and wiping with an absorbent cloth. As with any hot line rope, polypropylene should be stored in a dry place. Three strand construction is orange with black and green tracer. NOTE: While Polypropylene Rope has excellent dielectric strength, water accumulation between strands is a definite hazard. Also, Polypropylene Rope should not be used in running hitches or any place friction heating can occur. Not for use on capstans.

Webbing Slings
Webbing Slings
Chance non-insulating webbing slings are made in a highly visible "safety yellow." They are latex treated for increased abrasion resistance and are the softest, most pliable of the
nylon webbing slings. Standard fabrication does not include metal of any kind, either in the body or in the form of end fittings. Chance slings are desirable for handling delicate loads, and because of their flexibility are easily handled and stored. Two basic types include 10 sizes in the Endless version and one size in the Return Eye style.
WARNING: When selecting slings the following must be considered.
1 —Weight of load.
2 —Number of slings used to make lift.
3 —Type of hitch (vertical, choker, basket).
4 —Effect of "sling-to-load" angle on sling capacity (see table A). Increasing the angle of the sling increases the strain. Therefore, it decreases the lifting capacity of the strain. Therefore, it decreases the lifting capacity of the sling. Capacities listed are for vertical lifts.
5 —Chance slings must be considered as non-insulating.
All Chance slings are identified with a heat-imprinted sewn-on tag that includes capacities, width, style and length.
All Chance slings carry the required OSHA identification tags.
ENDLESS: The most versatile of all. Used in vertical, basket or choker hitch it conforms precisely to the shape of the load. It provides the best gripping and holding power in the upright position. It is also the easiest to use and lasts the longest because there are no eyes to determine wearing points. The endless construction permits the two parts of the sling which go around the load to spread apart to provide a "cradle" for the load.
RETURN EYE: Designed primarily for use in choker hitch, although it lends itself equally well to basket and vertical hitch applications. It is constructed from two widths of webbing laid side by side and held in place by a third width of webbing which binds the two together. This type of construction results in eye openings which are in the same plane as the sling body, and which is best for choking . . . the sling body remains flat against the load.

Webbing Slings
Webbing Slings
How do you carry two full buckets? The above illustrations typify the stresses imposed on slings when the legs are attached to the load at various angles.
While rated capacities are shown in this catalog, these tables were inserted primarily to show the severe reduction in capacity when a sling is operated at a wide angle. Wherever head room permits, it is recommended that the angle with the vertical not exceed 45°. Where head room is small and sling must be spread at an excessive angle, special care must be used in selecting a sling.

Kellems Pulling Grips
DUA Pull Type Grips
WARNING!
Never use wire mesh grips up to listed approximate breaking strength. Always use an appropriate safety factor when selecting grips for the working load in your application. Kellems minimum recommended factor of safety for pulling grips is five (5). Additionally, banding the tail end of the grip is recommended for maximum grip performance.

KELLEMS PULLING GRIPS
• for Overhead Pulling
• made of high-strength galvanized-steel strand
Notes:
1. Do not run grips or swivels over bullwheels while under tension.
2. Two Punch-Lok® bands should be firmly attached approxi mately 1 inch and 2 inches from the grip's tail. Banding is required to ensure maximum reliability and guard against accidental release.
3. DUA-Pull type grips only: Double-braided rope, as 2-in- 1 type, must be back-spliced for approximately 2/3 of the mesh length for best gripping results. Grip size must be selected by diameter of back splice.

DUA-Pull®Type Grips
DUA-pull Pulling Grips are the highest strength pulling grips manufactured for overhead transmission line stringing. They may work both bare and insulated conductors, as well as synthetic rope. Kellems' patented two-over/two-under weave design gives exceptional strength and gripping ability by putting more steel mesh in contact with the cable or rope surfaces.
Applications
DUA-pull Pulling Grips are primarily used in overhead transmission line construction where loads and safety considerations require an extra high strength grip, will mate with swivels and link-type connectors. They are most com monly used for attaching pulling lines to conductors, conductors to running boards and "double socking" for conductorto- conductor connections. The DUA-pull line accommodates ACSR, ACAE, all aluminum and copper conductors. Also, the grips accommodate ground wires, messenger strands, wire ropes and synthetic ropes.

K-Type Pulling Grip
Kellems rotating-eye K-Type Pulling Grips are made of high-strength galvanized-steel strand. They feature double weave mesh for greater strength and added mesh contact with the cable to handle longer or heavier pulling jobs. The forged eye mates with a swivel or shackle.
Applications: Rotating-Eye K-Type Pulling Grips are for use in the installation of underground power cables, communication lines and service lines into factories, shopping centers, construction projects and general underground electrical construction.
Rotating Eye Feature: K- Type Grips come equipped with a forged-steel rotating-eye which can be attached to a swivel. This durable, compact and streamlined eye will thread through blocks and sheaves without binding The rotating eye is not a swivel and will not turn while under tension. It can turn to relieve pulling torque when the tension is relaxed. If constant swivel action is required, a swivel should be used.
WARNING!
Never use wire mesh grips up to listed approximate breaking strength. Always use an appropriate safety factor when select­ing grips for the working load in your application. Kellems minimum recommended factor of safety for pulling grips is five (5). Additionally, banding the tail end of the grip is recommended for maximum grip performance.

Punch-Lok Bands & Tools for Pulling Grips
Bands & Tools for Pulling Grips

Note:
1. During installation, each end of the grip should be taped down securely to the cable to insure smooth passage with the cable and guard against accidental release.
2. See end bands listed below.

Punch-Lok® Bands are applied over the tail of a grip to prevent the mesh from being tripped or pulled loose. Also, they assure full gripping action by locking the mesh of the tail in tight contact with the cable or rope. When the tail of a grip is the leading end, the bands are particularly important to prevent accidental release caused by tripping on obstructions. A conductor-to-conductor (doublesocking) pulling operation is a good example: where two grips connect two conductors to form a temporary splice. Bands should be applied to the ends of the grips as illustrated herein. It is also common practice to tape over the banded tail area to assure smooth passage through the sheaves. The conductor should be installed in the grip up to the el bows of the aluminum shoulders in order to assure full and complete gripping action. The banding procedure is then followed as illustrated below.

Note: In all cases two Punch-Lok Bands should be double wrapped approximately 1" and 2" from the grip's tail. Banding is required to ensure maximum reliability and guard against accidental release.
