The Importance of Custom Cord Grips

In the article we share that when choosing customized cord grips, there are five main things to consider:

  1. Material Selection — This is more often application driven and depends on environment and application use, but can include diecast zinc, aluminum, nylon, steel, valox, and stainless steel.
  2. Wire Mesh Grips — Adding wire mesh can help support the weight of a cable that is vertical or sloping to prevent excessive strain and cable pullout.
  3. Custom Components and Cord Grip Add Ons — Part of the customization process is choosing from a variety of cord grip add-on options, including multiple hole bushings, o-rings, nickel-plating, anodizing, locknuts, and molded rubber cones.
  4. Special Threading Selection — There several different kinds of threading available to help create the perfect, reliable seal for your cord grip, including NPT, Pg, ISO (metric), and NPS.
  5. Custom Packaging and Kitting — Creating kits (or special bulk packaging) of connectors and components to your exact specifications means you can keep things quick and convenient.
