General recommendations

Service-Grip dead-ends, manufactured from aluminum clad steel and copper clad steel wire, are designed for the termination of bare aluminum and copper based conductors used for house service connections. The dead-end is recommended for house service by reason of minimum length, maximum economy and neat appearance.

 

Rated holding strength

Material used

Service-Grip dead-ends are made of material compatible with the conductor to which they are applied.
