Perfect for a variety of home and garden, marine and commercial arenas, this type of high tensile steel green pin socket is designed to be used alongside any of our wire rope.
Ideal for warehouse, farming jobs, sailing, fishing and other sports, the high tensile finish provides good resistance to weather. These green pin open wedge socket type fittings consist of a basket/cone and a wedge. They enable you to make a temporary connection to the wire rope with the wedge creating a vice like grip on the rope. The rope passes through the basket, around the wedge and back through the basket and then the wedge is pushed into place, the 2 ends are usually secured with a rope grip as shown in the picture.
