KingChain® Wire Rope Clips and Thimbles are used to create a complete and secure eye or loop on wire rope(sold separately). Wire rope should be the same diameter as rope clip and thimble. Wire rope clips consist of a U-shaped bolt, a forged saddle and 2 threaded nuts. The 2 layers of wire rope are placed in the U-bolt and clamped into place for a tight connection. Wire rope thimbles form the inside of the loop eye and provide rigidity and abrasion resistance for the inside of the loop. Both clips and thimbles are made from steel with a zinc-plated finish for weather resistance. If used on plastic coated cable, remove the coating from the assembly area before creating the loop.
