Really pleased once I got the first one started. HOld the gripple so the name reads correctly, then thread the cable in from the left into a silver hole, through the block, and return it through a blue hole. It will make sense when you hold one! I used the recommended stranded cable.
I bought these to terminate support wire for the roof of a fruit cage. it worked really well and allowed me to increase the tension without losing the existing tension.
This is a follow up to my previous review (I was the one with the problems with the wire). I have now used the wire provided by Harrods and it makes life SO much easier! Cutting the wire isn't trivial; I had to go to Homebase to buy something that would do it, ordinary wire cutters didn't work, but then the whole job (70 m of support for future wisteria) was put up in less than 30 mins - and most of the time was spent climbing up and down the ladder. The gripples and the wire worked together really well.
