GME Supply Safety Cable / Wire Rope Grabs are precision-crafted for vertical fall arrest protection, and are built tough to withstand years of use. The cable grab device is a cam activated fall arrester which slides freely up and down a 3/8" (10mm) steel safety cable wire, and locks up on the cable to arrest a free fall. Works great on both galvanized and stainless steel cables. Includes bonus pouch for storing your safety cable device.
