Mechanical capstan grip used to test small easy-bendable ropes. The test specimen is wrapped one or more times around the capstan before being clamped with jaws. The capstan roller generates a slow notch free stress relief to prevent the breakage of the specimen in the jaw clamping area. The number of wraps depends on the sample's coefficient of friction.
