About this Item
- Electro-galvanized saddles, u-bolts, and nuts
- Only used in non-critical applications
- Made from electro-galvanized steel
- Grooved-lip to keep the cable from slipping out
- Protects shafting, cutting, or crimping
Galvanized Malleable Clip & Thimble Pack
The Galvanized Malleable Clip & Thimble Pack includes 8 clips and 4 thimbles. Designed for 7 x 19 aircraft cable.
Galvanized Malleable Wire Rope Clips
The Galvanized Malleable Wire Rope Clips secures the end of the wire rope cable to the wire rope cable. Saddle and nuts should be on the opposite side of the terminated end and make sure that all the clips are on the same side and loops are on the side of the terminated end.
No warranty or liability for cable, clips, fasteners, or any other rigging past the purchase date. It is ultimately the responsibility of the user to determine a working load limit for each application. Do not ever use wire rope sold by or made by BH-USA or any product made by BH-USA to lift humans in any way.
Only used in non-critical applications.
ASME, OSHA, & ASTM recommend only forged clamps for critical applications.
Galvanized Wire Rope Thimbles
The Galvanized Wire Rope Thimbles is a looping fastener for boat lift wire rope cable. The electro-galvanized thimble has lips on the sides to keep the cable from slipping out. The thimbles protect the wire rope from shafting, cutting, or crimping when attaching it to things that could cause cable damage. When the wire rope is terminated with a loop, there is a risk that it will bend too tightly, especially when the loop is connected to a device that concentrates the load on a relatively small area. A thimble can be installed inside the loop to preserve the natural shape of the loop, and protect the cable from pinching and abrading on the inside of the loop. The use of thimbles in loops is industry best practice. The thimble prevents the load from coming into direct contact with the wires.
BH-USA recommends 7 x 19 aircraft cables for boat lift applications. 7 x 19 means the 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. Aircraft cables are not suitable for use in aircraft controls.
Drop Forged – Heated steel hammered into shape giving linear grain structure and greater strength. In the drop-forged clamps, the saddles are the drop-forged parts. Saddle pieces hot-dipped galvanized. Electro-galvanized (zinc plated) nuts and bolts.
Malleable Iron – Saddles made from a poorer strength grade of steel cast into shape. Cast malleable saddles can also yield under greater loads and cause the wire rope or cable to slip through and potentially fail. Also malleable clamps, saddles, u-bolts, & nuts are electro-galvanized.
