Malleable Wire Rope Clips
Never Saddle a Dead Horse
When using wire rope clips, (also know as
wire rope clamps) always apply the saddle
of clip to the “live side” or load bearing
side of the cable assembly.
Methods Of Application
1. Always apply the saddle of the wire rope clip to the live end (non turnback end) of the wire rope or cable. “Never Saddle a Dead Horse.” Turn back the specified amount of rope from the thimble. Apply the first clip one base width from the dead end of the wire rope.
2. Apply the next clip as near the loop as possible. Turn on the nuts but do not tighten.
3. Space additional clips equally between the first two. Take up rope slack. Tighten all nuts evenly on all clips.
