Similar to a ball end fitting, a ball shank end fitting is sphere-shaped, and when crimped on to the end of a wire rope or cable, can fit into a socket. Most ball shanks are made using stainless steel for added durability and have a hole that goes all the way through the end fitting. This along with the added shank part to the ball allows the ball shank to bond well enough to hold to the cables breaking strength. Ball end fittings on the other hand can only hold to 60-80% of cable breaking forces.
Ball shanks of various sizes and styles are available at Tyler Madison. These ball shank end fittings, like all of our other products, are manufactured using the latest technology.
