Threaded terminals are a basic, simple and cost effective way to terminate a cable railing. All of the models below are SS Type 316. The machine thread goes thru the end post and a nut fastens on the back of the end post with the exception of the lag swage model which threads directly into a wooden post. The hand swage threaded terminal is designed for field installation. Machine swage threaded terminal is typically fabricated by Lexco because it requires hydraulic compression.
