One nice thing about the loop of chain is that you can pull multiple pipes at the same time

If you're also going to pull 3/4-inch PVC, that requires another grip assembly.

Also, you want to get a cheap adjustable open-end wrench as a tool to help hammer the shell tight. 10-inch is a good size. King had, and maybe still has, a specific tool for this, but you can do without it.

I use a hammer. We took out a body bolt and bolted in a hammer holster right on back

a picture of the King Grip 'wrench' would make it clearer, but I couldn't find one - imagine a clumsy-looking plastic Fisher-Price toy wrench made of steel (the opening fits the hex nut on the grips)

the hammer is the tool of necessity here - the open-end wrench goes against the grip shell and you're hammering on the wrench, and not on the grip - that provides some protection for the shell, and extends its life

all fancy, we do it with the tap of the shovel to let go of the pipe on our grip.
