When I started cabling trees I had a curve jaw, Havens I think by name tontension the cable for splicing. I used 7 strand mild strand and then moved tonEHS. What I found out was that the Havens grip would nick/crush the EHS which weakened the cable. The utility company abandoned a Chicago grip...parallel jaws on a guy line. It was rusty when I found it. Good score

I used the Havens for some small strand and it did slip. My MacGuyver fix was to
Hammer some soft copper tubing to use as jaw inserts/whims. Worked great!
