Grip-Tite® Manufacturing Co., L.L.C. of Winterset, Iowa has been manufacturing earth anchoring products for over 94 years! In the 1920's and 30's, Grip-Tite® anchors were used to secure highway guard cables, then used extensively for guying oil well derricks and oil pipelines.

Following WWII, Grip-Tite® developed anchors for the rapidly growing rural electrification network of overhead lines. Since that time, Grip-Tite® has been supplying earth anchoring products for overhead electric and telephone lines – serving electric and telephone utilities coast to coast and outside the United States. Today, Grip-Tite® continues as one of the leading earth anchor manufacturers for the electric and telephone industries.

Grip-Tite® recognized the tremendous need for a product to simply and effectively secure and stabilize cracked and bowing basement walls without replacement of the walls. After an extensive development effort and using a modified anchor Grip-Tite® originally produced for the electric systems of the Island of Madagascar in the Indian Ocean, the Grip-Tite® Wall Anchor System became a reality. Hundreds of thousands of the Grip-Tite® Wall Anchor Systems have been installed and continue to give confidence and peace of mind to the homeowners involved.
