Product Description

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.

The Rigguy product is perfect for saving valuable or sentimental trees of customers!

The only downside to these is that the 7-Strand cable is difficult to find. No one wants to sell it by the foot (Hint-Hint Westech!)

You don't need these too often so it would be nice to buy the cable when you need it by the foot and not be forced to buy a 100'-500' spool!

Merchant Response:Thanks for the review Deborah! We do sell the cable by the foot, but we also have some minimum length requirements, which are noted at the page below. This cable actually requires quite a bit of handling, which is the reason for the minimum lengths. https://www.westechrigging.com/wire-rope-guy-strand---fittings-1x7-ehs-galvanized-cable.html
  • Easy to use. Clean look. Works well.
  • Can't easily purchase associated cabling by the foot.
