Carpet Grippers and Axminster Loom Parts

Carpet Grippers and Axminster Loom Parts

The gripper is the component that actually picks the tuft of yarn and weaves it into the carpet. It is rather like a thin pair of pliers, with one carpet gripper for each pitch of the carpet. Carpet grippers are fitted, and operate in the same way, for all designs of Jacquard and Gripper Spool Axminster loom.

1860 GEL make a wide range (around 40 different designs) of carpet grippers and all types of Axminster Loom Parts. Our carpet grippers have a reputation for being tough and hard wearing.

Carpet gripper designs have evolved over many years and some are only slight variants of others. For some of the very old designs, no formal drawings exist! If you do not know exactly which type of carpet gripper you require, place a sample on a photocopier and make a silhouette of it. Fax this to us and we can easily identify its profile. If we know the pitch (or gauge) we can then make grippers to suit your requirements.
