The VARI-GRIP Dead-End features a unique housing, wedge, and rod assembly is designed to provide a holding strength of 100% of the strand's rated breaking load. The high-strength U-Bolt allows for adjusting the guy strand tension without the need for a turnbuckle.
The VARI-GRIP Gen2 Dead-End (available for select applications) allows for proper U-bolt support without the need for conformal castings. The new Gen2 design is also lighter while still maintaining the same holding strength features as the standard design.
VARI-GRIP Link Plates are available as an easy-to-install anchoring accessory for VARI-GRIP Dead-ends as an alternative to anchor shackles. The assemblies use a bolt, nut, and cotter pin setup, offering security of anchor shackles. VARI-GRIP Link Plates can be used in new construction and retrofit applications.
