Information

Thimbles - Stainless Steel Rope Loops

Marine grade 316 wire rope thimbles for forming reinforced eyes in wire ropes.

Thimbles reinforce eyes made by looping the end of wire ropes and provide a longer lasting wear surface & help to support the wire rope eye.

Simply loop the cable around the outer groove and secure with a ferrule or wire rope grip.

Stainless Steel Thimble Creating Reinforced Loop In Wire Rope

Creating a loop using a stainless steel thimble with a ferrule.

Step 1

Simply lace the dead end of your wire rope through your ferrule and loop the end of your wire rope around the outer groove of the thimble.

Step 2

Pass the end back through the ferrule and pull-in the dead end to fit tight around the thimble.

Step 3

Once in place, we recommend using a crimping/swaging tool to compress the ferrule firmly onto the rope to hold your thimble loop securely.

Finishing Your Thimble Loop - Eye

Once fitted we recommend you load test your wire rope assembly with a load that is equal or greater than the expected load to ensure that your loop/eye performs safely.


Using wire rope grips

Alternatively you can use Wire Rope Grips to secure your thimble in place.
This method is quick and easy to install.
