Sta-Lok Swageless Fittings - How to assemble
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.
Wind tape around wire approx 12" (300mm) from end. This will prevent the socket from sliding down the wire.
TIP: If using a hacksaw to cut your wire rope, wind tape around wire to ensure a neat cut.
2. Unravel outer strands 2" to 3" (50-76mm) to expose central core.
TIP: Use a screwdriver to prise initial strands out of position.
3. Slide wedge component over central core of wire rope.
4. Reposition outer strands.
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.
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.
