1. The XS, X, and X-HDFE were designed to simplify the process of select-ing a pulling grip. The entire X series is unique for several reasons: 1. X model grips can be used overhead or for underground pulls.
  2. x model grips incorporate a single wire bail which, when put under pressure, conforms to even the tightest clearances, The single wire bail also connects easily with either ball bearing swivels or drop forged friction swivels.
  3. The reverse weave of all X models insures that the grip and cable will pass smoothly through even the tightest blocks, sheaves, bullwheels, etc.
  4. The X and X Heavy Duty feature metal shoulders installed beneath the bail. These shoulders allow the grip to be pulled through the most abrasive conduit or other rough environments, and still be used time after time. These shoulders are color coded to ensure the correct grip size is selected when making a pull.
When a friction swivel is needed for the X-Series Pulling Grips or any other Lewis Pulling Grip, please refer to the following chart. To order a swivel built into a grip, add “W/S” to the end of the grip part number.

Ball Bearing Swivels


Both “W’ Series (Regular Duty) or “HD” Series (Heavy Duty) are specifically designed for tension stringing and assure the conductor will remain in the neutral position during stringing of transmission and distribution lines. These twin race ball bearing swivels are manufac-tured from high-grade pre-stressed steel. Proper placement of thrust and radial bearing allow thrust and shock loads to be absorbed with-out affecting rotation of swivel. Pins are screwdriver removable.
