Swaged Sockets

Swaged Sockets

Swaged sockets are mechanically pressed onto the rope using special dies. With the correct fitting design and fabrication, swaged sockets develop 100% of the rope's strength. Normally, only regular lay rope is used. Swaged assemblies are interchangeable with spelter sockets up through 2" rope diameter. Assembly length is measured from center line of pins for both open and closed sockets.
