Wedge grips can be used in a variety of tensile testing applications. The WG243-20 comes with pyramid jaw faces and can be used up to 20 kN force. 

Easy clamping and unclamping action makes specimen loading faster. Self-tightening wedge design eliminates slippage. Can be used for tensile testing of wires, plastics, metals, elastomers.

This grip is designed to mount on a standard 5/8" eye end. This connection type is commonly used on test stands and load cells. Adapters are available to accommodate other connection types.
