Why would you want to use mechanical swage fittings?
Quick Attach™ fittings are precision machined from grade 316 stainless steel and are rated to 75% of the working load of the wire rope, when installed properly.
The advantage of Quick Attach™ fittings over conventional fittings is the arrangement of the wedges on the outside of the cable. This makes assembly much easier and allows different types of wire to be used with the same fitting.
Quick Attach™ fittings are ideal for repair of rigging without swaging and for many other industrial or architectural uses where the exact length of the cable cannot be determined beforehand or where assembly needs to take place on-site.
Please note Quick Attach™ fittings should never be used with standing rigging or where shock loads are common. Also, the reuse of wedges should not be attempted more than 1 time and not with any application requiring greater than 50% of the wire rope work load limit.
