Wire Rope Fittings
More often than not, a wire rope will need some kind of end fitting or termination in order to either secure the loose ends of wires or to create some form of anchor point.

We can supply and/or fit thimbles, sockets, rigging screws and turnbuckles, terminals and many other accessories and fittings all in a wide range of shapes and sizes.

secure fixing point.

Sockets are deemed the strongest of all wire rope end terminations; there are a few types of sockets available, open wedge, closed spelter, & open or closed swage ockets. Used primarily for terminating the end of the rope to enable connection to a fixed anchor point.
