Oval Swage Sleeve

Oval sleeves are an ideal way for making a neat, strong eye splice in a matter of seconds without frayed cable ends (use a stainless thimble). For eye splices, one stainless oval sleeve will hold full rated cable strength on 7 x 7 or 7 x 19 cable. On 1 x 19 we recommend using two stainless oval sleeves on each end to hold full rated strength (see product #S0750). The copper sleeves hold almost at full cable strength; to be conservative estimate about 80%. Again, use 2 sleeves on 1 x 19 wire. Aluminum swage sleeves will only hold about one half the cable strength; don't use in the marine environment. Crimping of sleeve must be done with a oval swage sleeve tool or the Swage-It tool, to insure maximum holding power. We also carry stainless steel sleeves (stainless is not for hand swaging). The copper stop sleeves are for designed for the end of the wire rope (single wire inserted) and provide a stop when crimped on.
