Default Wire rope clips

Do you use wire rope clips? Maybe carry them for field repairs? There are specific installation methods to insure that you get the full strength of the wire being repaired. Scroll down to the last (3rd) page of this doc for instructions from crosby

Wonder why they call them "clips". Never heard that beore. Google cable clips, nothing. Cable clamp... million results of clamps.

Depends on construction, most hoisting is wire rope, but I believe most winches use Aircraft cable.
I could be wrong though...

Good info either way. I didn't realize x amount of clamps were needed at x length. I've always used 3.

Default Re: Wire rope clips

Aircraft cable is a term for sorta specific type of wire rope. Wire rope has a few specs that determine best use and strength. Things like RHL & LHL, IPS, EIPS. Then there are specs like 6x19, 6x36, etc. Some has IWRC or FC.

RHL = Right Hand Lay
LHL = Left Hand Lay
IPS = Improved Plow Steel
EIPS = Extra Improved PS
6x19 = 6 strands, 19 wires each
IWRC = Independent Wire Rope Core
FC = Fiber Core

Braided wire rope has a whole nother set of terms.


But back to the point of the post. If you want to get as close to full strength as possible use the info in the link.
