Line-Grip™ makes erecting antenna masts a breeze. In many cases it reduces the number of people required, reduces the time for raising a mast and can increase safety. It definitely makes things easier! Field day may never be the same.
To errect a mast with three sets of guy lines (3 lines per set) we recommend using nine Line-Grips™. Properly configured and using a pivoting ginpole at the base, one or two persons can easily raise a 30 to 40 foot aluminum antenna mast. It is easy to practice and preset the Line-Grip™ to estimated positions on the guy lines.
Line-Grip™ is perfect for rope and wire alike. It has three ball bearings that under pressure grip the line, gripping harder as the line tension increases. Line-Grip™ is a "one-way" street for rope or wire. The rope moves easily through the Line-Grip™ in one direction and moves not at all in the other. If you have trouble feeding rope through, wrap the end to a point with a piece of electrical tape.
A manual operated release protrusion can momentarily cause the rope to move freely in either direction and when released immediately grip the line. Line-Grip™ can be operated with one hand.
Line-Grip™ is a unique and effective gripping device for wire or mast mounted antennas, support ropes, guy lines, tents, tarps, shelters, volley ball nets, flag poles, etc. The Line-Grip™ will change the way you work with ropes/wire and eliminates the need for knots that always need to be moved or secured.
Line-Grip™ works well on Kevlar, Dacron, cotton, nylon, polyester, polypropylene, sisal, jute, manila and other rope material. Also works well on insulated and non-insulated wire, solid or stranded. Rope sizes from approximately 1/8" to 1/4" (3-7mm). For strong long-lasting rope, see our Antenna Support Rope
