*Based on clean, unlubricated threads.
Table above shows minimum torque required to reach maximum holding power of wire rope clip.
**U-bolts and Nuts zinc plated


Sizes 1/8" through 1.1/2" also available in DOMESTIC.

RIGHT WAY FOR MAXIMUM ROPE STRENGTH

When using U-bolt clips, extreme care must be exercised to make certain that they are attached correctly. The correct way to attach U-bolts is shown above; the "U" section is in contact with the rope's "dead end" and is clear of the thimble. The "live end", carrying the load, is gripped by the saddle of the clip.

REMEMBER: "Never saddle a dead horse."

Also, the tightening and retightening of the nuts must be accomplished as required. See instructions here.
