Wire Rope Thimbles are the reinforcement that provides structure to the end loop of a stainless steel wire (or rope) run so that when it is secured, the force of the bearing point is evenly distributed along the length of the thimble and minimizes wear and stretch on the wire cable. A Thimble works with hydraulically and mechanically pressed ferrules. Our Wire Rope thimbles are AISI 316 grade stainless steel.

Usage: The Wire Rope Thimble G316 Stainless Steel does not terminate wire. Normally, the end of a length of wire is threaded through one side of a swage, the wire is then looped around a thimble and the end of the wire is threaded back through the swage. The swage and thimble are then secured
using a manual crimping tool. The thimble forms the ‘loop’ secured by the ferrule. The saddle already secured to the posts or uprights fastens to the loop. A larger thimble can be used with a small diameter wire to afford protection or form a larger loop. And this works if there is clearance.
