Welding Grasshopper Earth Device


The Sawyer Manufacturing Welding Grasshopper is a tool that attaches to a pipe to provide a ground for welding. It differs in design, some grasshoppers rely on a spring driven clamping mechanism or hardware that must be turned or tightened. Clamping and hardware driven grasshoppers are suited for horizontal pipe but suffer in clamping onto pipe that is in a vertical position. The Sawyer Welding Grasshopper sets itself apart from other Welding Grasshoppers in that it doesn’t utilize a spring that can wear out, nor does it require complicated adjustments to attach.The Welding Grasshopper utilizes a powerful magnet to adhere to the pipe being welding.



No current passes through the magnet on the Sawyer Welding Grasshopper. Careful attention was paid to shielding the magnet with durable plastic so that no arcing occurs.

The bolt was designed with threads only in the area that is turned and adjusted. There are no threads on the clamping portion of bolt. This provides for a secure clamp and secure connection and again, reduces the risk of arcing.
