Swage-it tools are precision manufactured of steel. We use grade 8 bolts for strength and durability Tools are plated for maximum rust protection and are pre-lubed for working ease. They are compact and easy to store. When an oval sleeve is swaged properly with a Swage-It tool the fitting will hold the full tested strength of the cable. When using the #2 or #3 tool for loop ends one oval sleeve will hold the full strength on 7x7 or 7x19 cable. On 1x19 cable use two sleeves at each end to hold full strength. ALWAYS TEST CABLE PRIOR TO USE Use a five to one safety factor when designing cable assemblies. If the breaking strength of the cable is 2000 lbs. (1/8 7x19 Cable) then the maximum load to which the cable is subjected should never exceed 400 lbs.
Our cutters are manufactured from aircraft quality ALLOY STEEL. They go through a complicated heat-treating process to produce a file hard surface and a tough core. That combination provides long life of the cutting edge. The cutters incorporate a unique handle design to provide added leverage with thick vinyl grips for comfortable cutting. The jaws are designed to produce clean cuts with no frayed ends. This allows you to easily insert the cable through asn oval sleeve.
The #2 Swage-It Kit has everything you need for rigging and making emergency repairs. Th kit comes in a plastic tube with vinyl caps at each end for protection and convenience. The SRS Retaining System was designed for hanging signs and attaching displays. Hands on displays that won't walk away. Custom Kits are no problem, just let us know what you need.
