From now through the end of June, you can make a difference in the lives of military children who have lost a parent by simply choosing Crosby® brand wire rope clips.
Crosby®, the world's largest manufacturer of lifting, rigging, and material handling hardware, is dedicated to donating up to $25,000 to the Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation based on sales of its popular wire rope clips.

According to Fallen Patriots, approximately 20,000 children have lost an active duty parent in the military over the last 35 years. Of those, 97% of casualties are men, leaving behind single mothers to care for their families, and 60% report having trouble making ends meet.
Fallen Patriots has enrolled thousands of children and granted millions in scholarships to hundreds of students. Now it's your chance to step up and help this great cause continue to do what they do, while also getting a high-quality wire rope clip from a trusted hardware manufacturer.
Wire rope clips have a wide variety of uses in many different industries including oil & gas, construction, and manufacturing. Not only is Crosby® a trusted manufacturer of wire rope clips, but it was, in fact, Oliver Crosby who invented the wire rope clip back in 1888.
Today, their two most popular clips are the G-450 Galvanized Wire Rope Clip and the G-429 Fist Grip Wire Rope Clips.
Crosby® G-450 Wire Rope Clip
This popular drop forged, galvanized wire rope clip features Crosby's signature Red-U-Bolt® for quick identification. With its traditional U-bolt style, saddle, and nuts – the versatile G-450 is suitable for a wide variety of heavy-duty rigging jobs. Available in a range of sizes from 1/8" up to 3-1/2".
Crosby® G-429 Fist Grip Wire Rope Clips
Unlike traditional wire rope clips, the Crosby® Fist Grip Clip is comprised of bolts and heavy hex nuts. The bolts are an integral part of the forged steel saddle and the nuts can be installed in a way that allows the rigger to swing the wrench in a full arc for fast installation. Sizes range from 3/16" up to 1-1/2".
