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.
Only used in non-critical applications.
ASME, OSHA, & ASTM recommend only forged clamps for critical applications.
7 x 19 Aircraft Cable
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.
- Electro-galvanized saddles, u-bolts, and nuts
- Only used in non-critical applications
- Never use for overhead lifting or suspending
