Cable Safety Sleeves

Wire Rope Grabs and Cable Sleeves

Your cable safety sleeve (also called a cable grab) is the second component of your fall protection rig. It should be attached to a rigid anchorage line (like a safe climb ladder system) to secure you while moving up or down on the wind turbine. We feature two main types of cable safety sleeves: traditional (manual), and trailing.

A traditional cable safety sleeve, also referred to as a manual cable safety sleeve, will not move on the lifeline. You have to move it as you climb up, hence the “manual” portion of the name. Trailing cable safety sleeves, on the other hand, can move up and down your lifeline freely (trailing you). This type of cable safety sleeve is typically more convenient and pose fewer hazards than a manual cable safety sleeve.
