Tensioning Device

The Series S900 tensioning device speeds the installation of emergency cable-pull switches by replacing the turnbuckle and wire clamps.

An onboard wire clamp and antislip design minimize the need for readjustment. A single tool secures the wire clamp and adjusts the tension screw. The device has a C hook that slips onto the ring of the cable-pull switch.
