The internal taper of a Rigguy Wire Stop fits over the middle strand of 1x7 EHS Strand Cable
, with the six remaining strands surrounding it. This "large" size in particular fits 5/16" - 3/8" cable.
The more pressure that is applied, the deeper into the block the strand and taper are pulled. The block itself is made of 6061 AL, while the taper is made of 416 SS for strength of application and corrosion resistance. Although the wire stop is only 1-1/4" long, it holds close to 100 percent of the Breaking Strength of the strand itself.
The Wire Stop eliminates the need for the j-lags, eye bolts, hooks, thimbles, clips and Tree-Grip Dead-ends
. It can be used in more applications because it is secured on the outside of the limb or trunk. Because of its small size and simplicity, it makes for a clean, clutter-free installation.
