Egg-shaped clamps have an attractive design and a clamping strength about as great as that of classic U-shaped grips. They can be used as a decorative fixing element in interiors, on playground equipment and toys, or wherever a traditional grip/clamp with its protruding screws is inappropriate due to the risk of injury. At FassadenGrün they serve as special clamps for the permanent attachment of 3 mm wire ropes to eyebolts, etc..by means of looping; they are often used in conjunction with a turnbuckle (see picture below). The 4 mm egg clamps are intended for heavy tensioning cables ('guy ropes'). Please note that these ovoid clamps cannot be used as a replacement of the standard u-shaped cable clamps in our easy kits without further ado, because then the cables within the clamp can no longer be tightened against each other. If necessary, refer to our general information on the use of clamps, grips, etc..



Similar to the guidelines for easy kits, because in each cable strand with one egg clamp at each end, at least one of the two can be combined with an additional cable tensioner or rigging (turnbuckle M5 fork fork). A rope loop is then formed using the egg clamp -- see photos. The tensioner is then mounted between the loop and the eyebolt (or similar), tensioning the steel cable.


Special Features

For 3 and 4 mm cables in facade greening, it is almost always sufficient to fasten each loop with just one egg clamp. In the case of heavily loaded cables, a second clamp can be used.
