Ball end fittings come in a variety of sizes in order to fit different diameters of cable. The end fitting is swaged on the end of a cable or wire rope, and then the ball can be inserted into a socket that holds it in place.
These fittings make it easy to attach and detach items to a cable, and also create a secure swivel point when connected to a socket.
At Tyler Madison, we offer a range of ball end fittings in various sizes and styles from heavy duty aerospace applications to residential lighting fixtures and everything in between. Our end fittings adhere to the end of a wire cable and can withstand high levels of pulling force.
Ball end fittings from Tyler Madison are available for cables with a diameter of 3/64”, all the way to 3/16”. Most crimped ball end fittings are only slightly larger in diameter than the wire rope it is adhered to.
Pull test strength of balls for size cable 3/32” and smaller is 80% breaking strength of the cable. Balls for cable size 1/8” and larger pull test at 60% of the wire ropes breaking strength. If you are looking for something that holds to 100% breaking strength and has a similar function try using a ball stem end fitting.
