The cable is pulled taught, then starting at the thimble end the "big
grip" is wound over the cable doing one turn on each side at a time.
Actually the "Big Grips" used on Phillystrand do the first 3 turns on
one side, then the three on the other. After that it's one turn on each
side at a time. Think of the grip acting similar to a "Chinese
Handcuff". They normally come with instructions. If you don't have
one, ask your grip supplier for one.|
When attaching the grips to the cable, does the cable go up one side of the grip and down the other, or does the cable only run up one side of the grip? Any diagrams out there showing how they work?
