  • Description
  • A travel distance of up to 1 - 2 40-50mm is recommended

    Avoid overlapping the stockings if King SafetyWhipsocks are on each end of the hose

    Forshorter assemblies a custom double ended, 4-eye Whipsock, must be used

    Note For ease of installation it's recommended to attach prior to installing coupling assembly

    Note Only use custom Whipsockson the specific length and diameter it is labelled for

    Replace immediately if damaged or worn

    Run your hands down the grip from the coupling end to the tail to smooth out any gaps orloose wires in the grip to ensure contact with the hose

    Safety notes Be sure the anchoring points are rated for the application

    Step 2 Always ensure to inspect entire King Safety Whipsock for frayed wire and corrosion before each use andinstallation

    Step 3 It is necessary that the hose is clean and free form oil and dirt before use

    Step 4 Compress the tail end of the King Safety Whipsock to open the ID, work the stocking to slide the grip down thelength of the hose

    Step 5 After coupling, slide the King Safety Whipsock up the hose into secured position just behind the fitting, ensuringthe eyes have enough length to reach the anchoring points

    Step 6 Using a King Safety Shackle or bolt, nut pin style clasp, rated above the breaking strength of the hose, securethe hose restraint at two horizontally opposed, rigid anchor points rated for the application

    Step 7 Slight slack in the legs is preferred

    This will allow a travel distance for coupling in disconnection and greatlyreduce the load applied to the hose restraint
