Vise lacer tools are ideal for small jobs. Designed to fit a standard
bench vise. The OSV-1 is a 6" tool for the hook series while
"2-7" series is available in both 4" and 6". The OSV-4 is very popular
for haybalers.

Locate the belt between the hook Points and hold it firmly against the hook retainer while closing the vise. Close the vise by turning the screw tight enough to embed the hooks into the belt. To obtain maximum splice strength us the Pressure Plate to clinch the belt hooks. Back off the vise screw to allow for inspection of the Pressure Plate. Retighten Vise, working the Pressure Plate across the entire splice.

Galvanized High Tensile
The standard, providing excellent use life. Good for
abrasion utilizing medium carbon steel. Galvanizing
provides some resistance to elements. Magnetic and poor
chemical resistance.

There are a vast number of special applications for
Wiregrip Belt Hooks where specific design changes en-
hance the performance of the final product. These may
be changes in metal, point configuration, length of leg,
etc. Also, special card lengths can be provided for ap-
plications to avoid time in cutting down the carded hooks.
430 Stainless
A magnetic stainless steel that offers some corrosion and
chemical resistance over galvanized steel. Will not rust
in food and agricultural applications. Can be used with
magnetic separation devices.

Wiregrip Hook Design

The standard products have been designed to provide
exceptional service over time. However, just as specific
engineering may have been optimized for the equipment
and belt, finite design changes can be made to optimize
the life of the belt splice.
316 Stainless
A high nickel chrome stainless steel that offers excel-
lent resistance to corrosion from acids and chemicals,
also good for mechanical abrasions. Excellent for use
where food and sanitation requirements are high. Basi-
cally non-magnetic.

Factors to be considered are the belt construction, fab-
ric, compound (rubber-PVC-urethane), plies, cover thick-
nesses, tensile strength. Application details to be ana-
lyzed include drive, take-up, tail section, snubbing pul-
leys, surfaces the belt may travel over. The frequency of
the starting and stopping, the loading, environment, and
objects being conveyed all influence the selection.
