Wire Belt has custom designed the Compact Grid™ Splicing Tool Kit to make splicing as simple and easy as possible. Each Tool Kit includes two CG-Splice Levers, and one set of CG-Splice Pliers. These tools are especially designed to help align and crimp the belt into place. The CG-Splice Pliers are designed to provide a perfectly shaped crimp, making the splice joint complete without damaging surrounding wire strands, or over-crimping the splice strand.

Step 1
Once the belt has been passed through the conveyor circuit and properly located on the drive and idler components, the leading belt-end hooks
(Strand A) will align with the trailing belt-end loops (Strand B)… as shown in this photo.


Step 2
Insert the leading belt-end hooks
(Strand A) into the trailing belt-end loops (Strand B) as shown.


Step 3
Once the hooks and loops are joined together, the belt should be slightly tensioned before the final steps in the splicing operation are performed. Be careful not to over-tension the belt at this point, because a little slack will be required for the next step.

Step 4
Insert the CG-Splice Levers into the belt hooks and loops as shown here. Apply a slight amount of pressure to the lever to form a tented position. Hook the end of the lever into the next strand to lock the tented strand in place. (As shown below in Step 4 A–D).

Step 5
With the CG-Splice Levers in place, and the belt in a slightly “tented” position, the CG-Splice Pliers can be used to crimp down the leading belt hooks (As shown below figure A). The CG-Splice pliers are designed to fit within the mesh of the belt, which enables the strand to be crimped to the proper depth. To correctly crimp your belt into position, start the crimping process 5 spaces in from the edge of the belt (As shown below figure B). Crimp moving outward towards the edge of the belt. Repeat this process on the opposite side of the belt. Now that you have the outer edges locked, you may crimp the remaining center spaces to complete the splice.
