Item Number: 1010079
Rope Size (in.): 5/16
Each base has a Product Identification Code (PIC) for material traceability, the name CROSBY or CG, and a size forged into it.
Based on the catalog breaking strength of wire rope, Crosby wire rope clips have an efficiency rating of 80% for 1/8″- 7/8″ sizes, and 90% for sizes 1″ through 3-1/2″.
Entire Clip-Galvanized to resist corrosive and rusting action.
Sizes 1/8″ through 2-1/2″ and 3″ have forged bases.
All Clips are individually bagged or tagged with proper application instructions and warning information.
Clip sizes up through 1-1/2″ have rolled threads.
Meets or exceeds all requirements of ASME B30.26 including identification, ductility, design factor, proof load and temperature requirements. Importantly, these wire rope clips meet other critical performance requirements including fatigue life, impact properties and material traceability, not addressed by ASME B30.26.
Look for the Red-U-Bolt®, your assurance of Genuine Crosby Clips.
Full Line: Crosby provides both forged “Red” U-Bolt® Clips and forged Fist Grip Clips.
Forged: Crosby Red-U-Bolt® Clips have forged bases on all sizes, except 3-1/2″ (the 3-1/2″ base is a steel casting). The entire clip is galvanized to resist corrosive and rusting action. Clip sizes 1/8″ through 1-1/2″ have U-Bolts with rolled threads which enhance the strength of the material and fatigue properties.
Forged: Fist Grip Clips are forged, and the entire clip is galvanized. The double saddle design eliminates the possibility of incorrect installation. Designed as an integral part of the clip, the bolts are opposite one another (see G-429 example below). As result, the nuts can be installed in such a way as to enable the operator to swing the wrench in a full arc for ease of installation.
Application Information: Application and warning information is available for both Crosby Red-U-Bolt® Clips and Fist Grip Clips. The Crosby Warning System is designed to attract the attention of the user, clearly inform the user of the factors involved in the task, and provide the user with proper application procedures. Each Crosby Red-U-Bolt® Clip and Fist Grip Clip is either bagged or tagged with appropriate application and warning information, thus ensuring that the information is available at the point of application for each and every clip during installation.
Material Analysis: Crosby can provide certified material (mill) analysis for each production lot, traceable by the Product Identification Code (PIC). Crosby, through its own laboratory, verifies the analysis of each heat of steel.
Testing: Crosby periodically audits the termination efficiencies of the Red-U-Bolt Clips and Fist Grip Clips. Upon special request, Crosby will determine the efficiencies of clip assemblies when applied to special rope constructions and special applications.
