Thimbles - Hard Eye Rope Loops

Wire Rope Thimble Collection

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.

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.
