Method Of Application

The correct way to attach wire rope clips is illustrated to the right.

  1. Apply the first clip one base width from the dead end of the wire rope. The base or saddle should bear on the line end of the rope - U-bolt on the short end. Tighten nuts firmly.
  2. Attach second clip as close to loop as possible. Tighten nuts but not firmly.
  3. Attach balance of clips spaced equally between first two clips. Tighten all nuts completely. Apply initial load - inspect nuts and retighten. Inspect all clips periodically.
