More information on eye plates and base plates

eye platesEye plates, or base plates as they are also called, resemble many of our other fitting equipment in that they feature an ‘eye’. A circle shaped metallic loop, this eye allows equipment, such as wire rope, to be fed through it, holding the rope firmly in place.

The difference with this piece of equipment is that the eye is permanently fixed to a plate, a flat and square shaped metal object. You will find four holes in each corner of this square, to allow room for nails or screws where it can be securely fastened into an area, such as a wall.

The whole object has been designed with strength in mind, and is used to create a firm anchoring point around which lifting operations or tensioning operations can be completed safely and securely.

Our eye plates and base plates are offered in stainless steel, so they are not only an inexpensive, yet strong, piece of lifting gear, but they also have a good level of resistance to corrosion and rust too. This means that they are popular for both indoor and outdoor use, hence their popularity within the marine industry. They are commonly used for applications such as for sun sail shades, or lashing points or mooring plates, and even for gardening & decking applications or architectural rigging too.

Please note that an order doesn’t come supplied with the fixings/screws, please enquire below for more information about this.
