Welcome to Kingpin
Need some earth tags for your cable glands to ensure they match up with safety standards? Kingpin Manufacturing are here to help.
Earth tags provide an earth bond attachment for cable glands, similar to the ones found in conventional plugs. In the case of a fault, the earth tag safely channels the electricity towards the ground, keeping anyone coming into contact with the cable gland away from harm. Earth tags are mandatory for all cable gland setups, as specified in BS 6121 Part 5 : 1993.
Kingpin’s earth tags are manufactured in various materials to suit the the many cable gland setups on the market. Brass earth tags are the industry standard, but we also manufacture aluminium, copper, mild steel and stainless steel 316 or 304.
We generally manufacture in Banjo and semi-tan gentle shape and in any material and cut to any thickness. Our sizes go from M12 to M130 and ½” npt to 4” npt.
We do so much more
Beyond brass earth tags, Kingpin Manufacturing also provides a wealth of other components to a huge range of industries. Tasked with maintaining the structural integrity of the cable gland and ensuring that it can’t be pulled apart easily, our locknuts are built to the same high standards as our earth tags.
The team at Kingpin is also highly experienced in producing a fantastic range of washers. These components ensure that foreign bodies, such as water and sand, don’t find their way into the interior of the cable gland. Both our washers and our locknuts are available in various materials and sizes.
Whatever you need, our experienced team can provide it for you. Kingpin will quickly become your one-stop-destination for all of your cable gland needs.

What are earth tags?
Earth tags are essential components in the manufacture of cable glands. They ensure safety and play a key role in reducing the risk of electrical shock in industries where high levels of electricity are prevalent.
Lives can be put at risk if these components are manufactured incorrectly or installed poorly, but, thankfully, the team at Kingpin have spent countless years developing safe brass earth tags and our knowledge of the cable gland industry is hard to beat.
