How to create a simple soft eye wire rope loop.

Simple soft loops can be added to stainless steel wire by placing the stainless steel ferrule over the end of the wire and looping the wire back on itself, passing back through the stainless steel ferrule. Once in place use a swaging or crimping tool to compress the stainless steel ferrule until it holds the wire firmly.

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

Step 1

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