Wire Rope Clips At US Rigging
If you are interested in a Wire Rope Clip, you have come to the right place. We offer U-Clips made with stainless steel or galvanized steel. These clamps are used to apply terminations on a cable assembly.
If you are looking for swage sleeves, which fulfill similar functions, we also have those available in their own category. However, if you are interested in picking up some Wire Rope Clips, we have prepared some information that you should find useful.
What Are The Advantages Of Using Cable Clips?
As we mentioned before, Wire Rope Clamps are used for a similar function to their not-so-distant cousin, the swage sleeve/ferrule. They are used to establish dead-ends and eyes at the end of a wire cable.
While using a clip may decrease the breaking strength of a rope slightly more than a swage would, there are a few advantages over swages. A Wire Rope Clip can be removed and even reused without much wear. This makes clips ideal for less permanent fixes.
Benefits To Using Wire Rope Clips:
- Eyes Are Easily Applied To Wire Cables
- Can Be Removed From A Wire Cable Easily
How Much Do Wire Rope Clips Impact A Breaking Strength?
When a clip is installed properly, the decrease in the breaking strength of the wire. Eyes installed with Cable Clips will maintain 80-90% of their strength. However, when a clip is not installed properly, the decrease in breaking strength will be much more significant.
What Other Tools Are Required To Install Cable Clips Properly?
Since we just discussed the importance of installing a wire clip properly, let’s talk about what you will need to get this kind of job done. If you already work with wire cables, chances are you already have everything you need.
Tools Needed To Install Wire Rope Clips:
- Cable Cutter
- Tape Measure
- Torque Wrench
Note if you are on the market for a new Cable Cutter, we have several to choose from.
Is It Better To Use Stainless Steel Or Galvanized Steel?
For the most part, Galvanized Steel is a little easier on your wallet than Stainless Steel and it will take a lot of abuse without much damage to show. However Galvanized Steel is not quite as strong as Stainless Steel and it can’t be used in jobs where the rope may be exposed to saltwater or excessive moisture.
