Abstract (en)

[origin: JPH0885448A] PROBLEM TO BE SOLVED: To reduce the size of grip devices and eliminate problem icing of their movable portions by constructing heavily loaded jaws, a hanger, a support bar and the lower ends of compression springs in a block. SOLUTION: A support hanger 12 movable along a moving cable 9 in a cableway carrier system supports by way of its joint 11 a grip body 10 that carries cable clamping jaws comprising a fixed jaw 13 and a movable jaw 14 and giving clamping force from a pair of compression springs 28 and 29. The clamping jaws are controlled in opening/closing relative to the cable 9 by a grip operating mechanism including an operating lever 17. One-side ends 30 and 31 of the compression springs 28 and 29 are secured to the free end of the operating lever 17, and the other ends 33 and 34 are near the fixed jaw 13. The compression springs 28 and 29 extend in a second plane perpendicular to a first plane the grip body 10 and operating lever 17 define and slanting relative to the grip body 10.
