Splice Inspection Guide

To achieve optimal performance of a Clipper® splice, select the correct fastener based on the belt thickness, minimum pulley diameter, and application conditions. Next, ensure that the fastener is properly installed; one of the most important factors is to embed the wire diameter one-half to one-third into the belt. To measure/inspect the splice has been properly embedded, follow these simple directions:

Step 1: Measure the belt thickness.
Step 2: Install the fasteners into the belt.
Step 3: Using a micrometer or caliper, measure the finished splice. Be sure to capture both the short leg knuckle and the adjacent long leg in one reading.
Step 4: Your finished splice should be within the range of the initial belt thickness plus one-half to one-third of the wire diameter.

Belt thickness = .100"
Hook size = 1 (.040" wire diameter)
Finished splice thickness should measure
.140"- .153" (.100"+ .040" to .053").

Other Critical Elements of a Good Splice:

  1. Hook points should slightly penetrate the opposite side.
  2. Hook legs should be parallel when installed. The knuckles of the hooks
    should not be higher than the legs.
  3. Do not lace entire width. Leave ¼"– ½" on each edge unlaced.
  4. Use one more hook on leading edge than on trailing edge.
  5. Chamfer/notch trailing edge.
  6. Belt edges should line up when laced ends are connected.
