Handles and Push-Pull End Fittings

Here at Tyler Madison, we fabricate a wide variety of handles and end fittings to complement the wire rope controls and assemblies we construct for our customers. Cable handles and end fittings are found on push pull cables/push pull control cables, release cables, chokers, throttle cables and more.

Some of the main purposes of push pull knobs and handles are for:

• Adjusting
• Actuating
• Accelerating
• Regulating
• Releasing

These end fittings offer confidence, precision and security to their user and their application.

We make most of our push pull knobs and wire rope handles with a shell of phenolic resin or a similar composite. Such compounds create strong, chemically impervious and thermally stable hardware that is easy to grip without pain. This is a significant advantage if and when you need to tightly grip your assembly. If you require a custom product material or coating, we’re happy to discuss your needs and come up with a solution that works for you. We can also produce custom handles and knobs that meet different standard requirements, including those of Mil-spec cables (military cables) and aircraft cable assemblies.

Our most popular cable handles are t-handles. For details and size charts, keep reading.


Wider than regular handles, T-handles are superior to regular handle fittings in a number of ways. First, they are capable of delivering greater torque, while requiring less energy. T-handle pull cables also provide a comfortable two finger grip. All in all, they are easy to use and durable. We offer our T-handles in a variety of different sizes and dimensions. Check out the chart below for details and, of course, reach out to us for information.

Push-Pull Assembly End Fitting

Push-pull assembly end fittings, as one might assume, attach to the end of the outer sheath (also called conduit) of a push pull cables assembly. Push pull assemblies are control cables used to transmit force in two directions. The choke cable on a lawn mower engine is, for example, a push-pull assembly. In addition to lawn and garden, you can find push-pull cable assemblies in automotive, aviation, exercise, medical and office applications.

Push pull cable assembly end fittings are essential to properly securing the assembly to a mount. We usually achieve this through the use of threaded bolts and nuts or the use of a snap ring. Without the right end fittings, a push-pull assembly could easily deflect under tension and cause a system failure or complete loss of control.

For your convenience, we offer push pull knobs and handles and end fittings in a wide variety of standard configurations and stock material. We have an extensive inventory of stock components, like push pull handles. However, we also welcome requests for custom work! To ensure expediency and the highest quality parts, we employ a group of local machinists to produce specialty fittings.
