Grips and Attachments

Mark-10 grips and attachments are integral components of testing systems, designed for a wide range of tension, compression, and torque applications. These grips and attachments are able to mount to Mark-10 force gauges, torque gauges, sensors, and test stands.

Bottle Grip

This unique grip is designed for securing bottles, containers, and other items for closure torque testing. Eight rubber edged gripping arms effectively grip a wide range of sample shapes and sizes and can be individually positioned at angles of up to 180°. The G1023 mounts directly to the TST, TSTH, TSTM, and TSTMH Torque Measurement Test Stands. The grip may also be mounted to a force measurement stand to secure closures in such applications as top load testing.

Cap Grip

This grip effectively secures bottle caps during torque testing. The G1053 is designed with a hex tail to fit into the chucks of our torque sensors. Reversible serrated jaws accommodate caps with diameters of 0.65 - 1.80 in [16.5 - 45.7 mm] while a knob quickly engages and disengages samples.

This grip can be used either manually with an STJ torque sensor or MGT torque gauge, or in test stand controlled applications, using our Series TST torque test stands. If used with a test stand, this grip complements our G1023 bottle grip.
