Produced from a malleable cast iron these solid thimbles can be supplied in self colour or hot dipped galvanised for a more resistant finish.

Solid thimbles can enable a more permanent connection to a straight pin and are mainly used on crane wire ropes.

Castings are supplied unmachined to BS464 standard. To apply, thimbles will need machining both sides. Attention should be paid to the maximum pin hole size that can be drilled, this must not be exceeded. 2 ½” is the maximum bore hole permitted in our largest solid thimble; view the specification table below where you will find all the technical data.
