Stop sleeves will not hold to the nominal published break strength of any cable.

We recommend the use of a mechanical or hydraulic swager to obtain the full holding power of stainless steel oval sleeves.

Sleeves and other fittings swaged over a plastic jacket will not hold to the nominal published break strength of the cable.

To determine the actual holding strength of any fitting a pull test must be made. This will assist in determining if the applied fitting is suitable for your application.

Cautions and Warnings

Do not use a vise, pliers, hammer or electrical type crimping tool to attach oval or stop sleeves to a cable. None of these methods will make a finished fitting that will develop the holding power provided by a properly designed swaging tool.

Properly swaged aluminum and copper oval sleeves will develop the published nominal break strength of the cable on 3X7, 7X7, and 7X19 constructions. Sleeves used on other constructions will not hold to the nominal published break strength.

Stop sleeves will not hold to the nominal published break strength of any cable.

To determine the actual holding strength of any fitting a pull test must be made. This will assist in determining if the applied fitting is suitable for your application.

Applying any fitting over a plastic jacket is not recommended. Sleeves and other fittings pressed or swaged over a plastic jacket will not hold to the nominal published break strength of the cable.

Warning

The holding power of sleeves and fittings is influenced by the diameter of the wire rope/cable as well as construction. Exact holding strength can only be determined by pull testing. Due to variations in wire rope/cable products breaking strength tests should always be performed on a sample of the wire rope/cable to be used.

As in all wire rope application, proper design factor must be employed. Design factor is the ratio of the strength of the assembly to the applied load.
