When using U-Bolt clips, extreme care must be excercised to make certain that they are attached correctly. The correct way to attach U-Bolts is shown above; the “U”section is in contact with the rope’s “dead end” and is clar of the thimble. The “live end”, carrying the load, is gripped by the saddle clip. Also, tightening and retightening of the nuts must be accomplished as required.
*Based on clean, unlubricated threads. Table above shows minimum torque required to reach maximum holding power.
CAUTION: NEVER USE ANY WIRE ROPE CLIP TO DIRECTLY CONNECT TWO STRAIGHT LENGTHS OF WIRE ROPE.
