Fitting a Sta-Lok Terminal


Sta-Lok Wire Connector Terminals - Technical Information - How to assemble

1. Cut wire rope and slide socket component over wire

Sta-Lok Terminal Instruction 1

TIP: If using the hacksaw, wind tape around wire and saw though tape. Wind tape around wire approx 12" (300mm) from end. This will prevent the socket from sliding down the wire.

2. Unravel outer strands 2" to 3" (50-76mm) to expose central core

Sta-Lok Terminal Instruction 2

TIP: Use a pen knife to prise initial strands out of position.

3. Slide wedge component over central core of wire rope

Sta-Lok Terminal Instruction 3

4. Reposition outer strands

Sta-Lok Terminal Instruction 4

Turn outer strands either clockwise or anti-clockwise, depending on the lay of the wire, around the wedge. Ensure approx 1/8" (2-3mm) of the central core protrudes from the end of the wedge.

Outer strands should be evenly situated around the wedge. Care should be taken to ensure that a strand does not slip into the slit of the wedge.

TIP: Push the socket towards end of wire, while repositioning the outer strands, this will help control. When wire strands are in position, push socket firmly, as indicated to hold wires in position.

5. Final Assembly

Sta-Lok Terminal Instruction 5

Ensure former component sits in bottom of end fitting. Screw socket assembly into end fitting and tighten with spanners. The assembly is now complete.

TIP: Undue force is not required to terminate the wire. Fitting instructions are supplied with each Terminal.
