3/8″ Stainless Steel Wire Rope Cable

The 3/8″ Stainless Steel Wire Rope Cable is a 7 x 19 strand aircraft cable. Moderate corrosion resistance & remains ductile over long periods running over sheaves. Best used for saltwater applications. The most commonly used cable for boat lifts. Made by BH-USA.

BH-USA recommends 7 x 19 aircraft cables for boat lift applications. 7 x 19 means the wire rope has seven strands and there are nineteen wires in each strand. Always consider at least a 5:1 safety factor when figuring working loads. A test certificate for all cables sold by BH-USA is available upon request.

7 x 19 aircraft cable is not suitable for use in aircraft controls.

No product can operate indefinitely at its rated capacity. Wire rope and Cable must be inspected regularly for any deterioration which may result in the loss of original strength. Users must determine whether further use of the rope would constitute a safety hazard to life or property. Lubricate operating ropes regularly. Keep out from under any raised loads and keep out of the line of force of any load. AVOID SHOCK LOADS. Due to the uncontrollable situations in which this cable is used after the purchase, BH-USA cannot warranty or be held liable for cable past the purchase date. It is the responsibility of the ultimate user to determine a working load limit for each application. Many factors should be considered: included among, but not limited to, loads applied, speed of operation, acceleration or deceleration, length of rope or cable, shock loads, abrasion, corrosion, number, size, condition and location of drums and sheaves, facilities for inspection, and the danger to life and property should a rope or cable break. Wire Ropes and Cables must be stored, used, lubricated, and maintained in accordance with normal safety standards; and must be properly designed, maintained, and operated. Inspect regularly. Do not kink, knot, or crush. Do not ever use wire rope sold by or made by BH-USA to lift humans in any way.
