    Hand Fitted instead of machined swage – Five Easy Steps to Instant Rigging

    The Sta-Lok system is a simple mechanical method of terminating 1×19, 7×7, 7×19 and compacted strand wire ropes. Suitable for both right hand lay and left hand lay constructions.

    The Sta-Lok terminal can be fitted on site using very simple hand tools, this means no pre-measurement or site visit is necessary.

    The Sta-Lok terminal will work under constant loading and variable shock loading.

    Manufactured from 316 stainless steel. All Sta-Lok terminals are reusable* requiring no servicing, providing long life and very low maintenance costs.
    *A new wedge component must be used.

    Fitting instructions are supplied with each terminal, however please find the below fitting instructions for reference.

    • Sta-Lok Terminals have been designed for use with stainless steel wire ropes. They should not be used with Galvanized wire ropes because rapid galvanic action will cause the wire rope to corrode and fail.
    • Sta-Lok Terminals are not suitable for use with wire ropes with fibre cores.
    Step 1.

    Slide socket component over wire. TIP: Wind tape around wire approx. 12″ (300mm) from end. This will prevent the socket from sliding down the wire.

    Step 2.

    Unravel outer strands 2″ to 3″ (50-76mm) to expose central core

    Step 3.

    Slide wedge component over central core of wire rope

    Step 4.

    Reposition outer strands

    Turn outer strands either clockwise or anti-clockwise, depending on the lay of the wire, around the wedge.

    Ensure approx. 1/8″ (2-3mm) of the central core protrudes from the end of the wedge.

    Outer strands should be evenly situated around the wedge. Care should be taken to ensure that a strand does not slip into the slit of the wedge. TIP: Push the socket towards end of wire, while repositioning the outer strands, this will help control.

    When wire strands are in position, push socket firmly, as indicated to hold wires in position.

    Step 5.

    Final Assembly

    Ensure former component sits in bottom of end fitting. Screw socket assembly into end fitting and tighten with spanners. The assembly is now complete.

    TIP: Undue force is not required to terminate the wire. Fitting instructions are supplied with each Terminal.
