Applications In the event of a high-pressure hose assembly failure, King Safety Whipsocks provide stand-by safety and minimize uncontrolled whipping Used in high pressure air, water, hydraulic, and slurry applications Features Dual anchor points secure hose-to-hose and hose-to-rigid anchor points Woven cable grips the hose securely over a large area while protecting it from everyday abrasion and wear Construction Galvanized steel wire Stainless steel options available upon request Spiral guard to prevent cable wear caused coupling vibrations Installation Instructions for properly Installing, Securing and Maintaining King Safety Whipsock (High pressure hose restraint designed to secure hose-to-hose and hose-to-rigid anchor points to minimize uncontrolled movement in the event of hose connection failure or separation.) Step 1: Select the appropriate King Safety Whipsock based on the hose O.D

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
