This Puller is used to pull out cable prior to the lashing operation. The main body of the Puller is a rugged one-piece aluminum casting. Two hardened steel rollers are provided to ride on either 5/16" or 1/4" strand. When pull-out pressure is released, a brake automatically holds the Puller in position. Pull-out pressure releases the brake. For best results, attach the cables in a balanced manner.
