A Gripple is used to connect two ends of our 8 gauge monofilament wire together. This Gripple can handle 3.25mm-4.20mm wire or monofiliament. The maximum tension strength is 1320 lbs. Simply place 8 ga. monofilament wire into the holes on either side of the Gripple. The 8 ga. Gripple tool will automatically grab and secure the monofilament wire ends without releasing them. Deerbusters recommends using our Gripple tightening tool to tighten the monofilament wire using the ratcheting action of the Gripple.
