The one thing all of these Swageless Wire Rope Fittings have in common is that there is no crimping. The swageless fittings that you’ll find on this page are designed for cable railings. There’s two reasons for that, one is that they’re Type 316 SS and the other is they’re designed for normal working load limits needed to tension cable railing. The push-lock and pull-lock designs are the fastest to install because you insert the cable and it self-locks with the internal springs. The other designs utilize a plug (sometimes called a cone or wedge) which must be manually placed on to the center wire(s) prior to securing the outer fitting housing. These swageless wire fittings designed for wire rope fittings are field installed.
