Wire rope and fittings are used with manual and electric winches to securely rig heavy loads and equipment. Swage fittings and cable fittings are used for heavy rigging applications, including rigging boats, trucks or industrial equipment. Swaging machines use dies to assemble terminals on to cables. Dome and ball swage fittings add protection to wire rope ends. Wire rope fittings, clips, and clip and thimble sets secure wire rope ends when turning back to form a loop. Wire rope tension gauges measure the tension of wire rope in architectural and marine applications.
