Welcome to the swivel fittings page, here you can find a good variety of fittings which are suitable for use with ropes. They are perfect for creating specific connections between two ropes, whether they are the same type or of a different variety. Because these fittings swivel they help to alleviate the issue of twisting and tangling of the rope, plus they can be rotated to the required angle.

Eye & Eye Swivel Fittings
A classic eye-eye swivel fitting is most commonly used for sailing applications. As such the fittings we sell are manufactured using high quality materials that can withstand the rigours of use in a marine environment. Rain, salt water and intense amounts of strain will all be handled with ease.
Sizes for this type of swivel fitting range between 5mm and 19mm, so you should be able to order the ideal component according to your requirements. The larger the fitting you select, the greater its load bearing capabilities will be, so always keep this in mind as you browse our line-up.
Eye & Jaw Swivel Fittings
Following in the footsteps of our other swivel fittings in terms of durability and strength, our selection of eye-jaw units will survive for extended periods without succumbing to corrosion. Load limits start at 640kg and go right up to a little over 10 tonnes for the largest example. The jaw mechanism makes it easy to remove and reattach this fitting on the fly, which is why they are also often found in the construction of wire rope balustrades, as well as in the world of sailing.
Jaw & Jaw Swivel Fittings
The jaw-jaw configuration of fittings will create a durable point at which two separate ropes or cables can swivel without becoming tangled. Finished in high quality stainless steel, these fittings are built to last and priced competitively.
Fixed Snap Shackles
With a safety catch that snaps close to prevent unwanted uncoupling, our fixed snap shackle options will be a welcome addition to any yacht or boat. Lengths of 52mm to 96mm are available to buy from Rope Services Direct, with break loads of up to 1630kg afforded by this range.
Swivel Jaw Snap Shackles
Our swivel jaw snap shackles are functionally similar to our fixed units, but with a swivelling jaw attachment that lets them limit twisting. The largest example has a lower 1010kg load limit, but it still provides safety in sailing applications of several types.
Swivel Eye Snap Shackles
If you would prefer a swivel eye snap shackle to one with a jaw fitting, this is the product to pick. It has all of the weatherproofing potential mentioned above, as well as a good variety of sizes and strength options to compliment any potential use.
Choosing Swivel Fittings
