The cable gripper forms the link between a recovery line from the surface vessel and a submarine cable when the cable is to be brought to the surface. The cable gripper is a powerful jaw mechanism with a lifting eye. The jaw is set hydraulically and then remains mechanically locked (by an over centre mechanism) after the hydraulics are removed. It is therefore highly suitable for operation by remotely operated vehicles (ROVs).

The gripper consists of one static and one hinged jaw. It is closed and opened by a hydraulic ram. A choice of jaw sets provides the necessary flexibility to enable the gripper to handle cable of varying sizes up to 100mm in diameter.
