Aircraft stainless-steel 1/16" wire-rope (cable) is typically rated at 680 pounds minimum breaking strength. These crimps (when properly applied with a swaging tool) exceed this rating. The wire will fail before these joints will fail.

You can crimp them with a pair of ViceGrips and they will be very strong, but you don't know how strong - you have no flippin' idea. You have no weight rating if you don't properly use a swaging tool. Therefore, don't rig for people or weights above heads using ViceGrips.

If you buy these at a local hardware store (as opposed to a theatrical supply house), you will probably be expected to purchase them in pairs (and perhaps accompanied with a wire stop). They will be VERY expensive (and sometimes you will have only copper options).

I have rigged with these crimps in several (non-Union) theatrical productions, including lifting performers more than six feet. These productions were fully compliant with all OSHA requirements.

I have been using Loos Duplex crimping sleeves for quite a while. Though I may not need the extra grip, I always make it a point to use two (2)sleeves along with a thimble. I believe it is always necessary to use a thimble or the strands of wire will "crush" if the bend is a sharp radius. A lack of a thimble will lead to wire fatigue and failure on a sharp radius. I use a stainless steel wire with these aluminum sleeves. As stainless steel is of higher nobility, the aluminum sleeve will eventually seize to the wire rope when exposed to the weather. As I stated, one sleeve will do the job, especially if used outdoors, but I feel better using two until the galvanic reaction occurs. This action can take several months or longer depending on the moisture and temperature.Loos Cableware SL1-2 50 Piece Aluminum Duplex Oval Crimping Sleeve Set for 1/16" Diameter Wire Rope

For extra strength, I use the Loos Cableware SL1-2 Aluminum Duplex Oval Crimping Sleeve Set for 1/16" Diameter Wire Rope to hang heavier pictures along with the SuperSoftstrand #5 wire (also available on Amazon). The SuperStrand #5 wire will hold up to 45 lbs. and the Loos 1/16" crimping sleeves fit perfectly with this wire. When you use the crimping sleeves with the SuperStrand wire, your picture will be secure and will never unravel. It is recommended to use a crimping tool, but I found that you can also use a good pair of heavy duty pliers to crimp these connectors if you have average strength in your hands

These ferrules are similar in quality as those available from other sources. They all appear to be formed correctly and they worked well on my 1/16" stainless steel wire rope using the Lehigh Group ST18 18" Steel Swaging Tool. Consider purchasing these in bulk elsewhere for greater savings: Reputable ebay sellers regularly sell 100-packs for the same price with free shipping.

Used this on a coated wire rope. Well made, crimped with simple tools (electrical crimpers work well on this (small) size and, being aluminum, shouldn't have any problems outdoors, which is where it's being used.

These were bought for use with 1/16 inch steel wire rope. They worked very nice and a very good price as opposed to local retailers.

We make metal wind chimes, and these are very handy in the construction of them. They are a great buy to purchase in quantity.
