Mark-10 G1061 Self-Tightening Wedge Grip, 1,200 lbF (0.9 kN)


The G1061 heavy-duty self-tightening grip has a capacity range of up to 1,200 lbF (0.9 kN). It’s ideal for tensile testing of a wide range of materials.

Product Description

Select from rubber or serrated, hardened steel jaw faces for the G1061. Unlike conventional wedge grips, the jaws ride on rollers instead of sliding along the surface of the housing. This unique design prevents jamming and improves gripping. Plus, the spring-loaded jaws open with a highly ergonomic rack and pinion lever mechanism. Therefore, the smooth and easy operation of the lever greatly reduces operator hand fatigue.

The G1061 is useful in tension, compression, or torque applications. The self-tightening mechanism allows the user to adjust their desired grasping force. Do this without removing the grip from your test sample or moving it out of alignment. As with all Mark-10 products, this grip comes with a 3-year warranty.
