Wedge-Grip Dead-ends are truly creative, functional and simple--in fact, you could easily say that they are the simplest of all such cable termination products on the market today.
But How Do They Work?
Wedge-Grip Dead-ends are designed to simplify the costly, labor intensive job of cabling trees. The simple housing and wedge assembly terminates 1x7 EHS Strand Cable by simply sliding over it, and with a turn of the cap, the strand is held in place. Wedge-Grip Dead-ends eliminate the need to twist strand or alter its integrity in any way. The result is a reliable cable termination that maintains 100% of the published rated Breaking Strength of the strand, and takes only seconds to apply.
They also eliminate the need for the j-lags, eye bolts, hooks, thimbles, clips and Tree-Grip Dead-ends. Because of their compact size, they can be used in applications where space and working room is limited, such as the crotch of the tree. Keep in mind that because the cable must be fished through the tree, you will need a proper Ship Auger Bit.
