Easy To Fit: Cut back a section of insulation from the suitably rated welding cable to expose the copper strands. Remove the plastic handle from the electrode holder placing it over the welding cable. Insert exposed copper wire into the metal conductor under the handle and tighten grub screws to secure cable. Generally, the other end of the earth clamp will have a dinse cable plug attached to match the size of the connection to the machine. If in doubt, feel free to ask and we will be happy to advise.
The electrode holder and welding leads should be suitably rated to the machine being used. If too much current passes through the lead and holder, it will get hot, can get damaged and could be a fire risk.
