Zip-Clip, how does it work?

Pass the wire through the zip-clip • Loop the wire through or around the anchor point •  Pass the wire back through the zip-clip allowing 15cm  of wire protruding • Apply tension •  Always confirm engagement of the zip-clip on the wire by pushing the pin in the opposite direction of the arrows indicated on the zip-clip •  To adjust, take the load off the wire support and pull the  tail slightly to disengage the wedge, then release using  the adjustment pin – no tools required

The KL200 can be used to make a figure of eight suspension, using one clip:

•  Pass the wire into the “through hole” in the KL200 and then around your fixing or anchor point. Pass the wire end through the locking channel in the KL200 and pull through 15cm of free wire •  Pass the other end of the wire through your bracket or around your anchor point and back through the locking channel allowing 15cm of free wire through the clip •  Always confirm engagement of the zip-clip on the wire by pushing the pin in the opposite direction of the arrows indicated on the zip-clip •  Prior to load being applied, the wire can be adjusted in either direction •  With the load off the wire, push the release pin in the direction of the arrow on the zip-clip. This will release the locking wedge and allow the wire rope to be moved freely in either direction. After a load has been applied, it may be necessary to pull the cable slightly to disengage the teeth on the wedge. Be sure the load is fully supported before attempting adjustment

Zip-Clip wire supports are used as an alternative means of suspension  to traditional threaded rod systems.

They offer the following  main benefits: • Quick installation times • Easy to use, requiring non skilled labour •  Guaranteed weight loadings from 15 – 500kg per wire support which are independently tested and give a 5:1 safety factor • Easier to store and transport • Low visual impact •  Array of different fixings to anchor to a variety of  base materials •  Array of attachments to fix to a variety of applications.
