Marine Eye Fittings

Marine Eye Fittings

Marine Eye Fittings are primarily made for and used by the boating industry. They are always made out of 316 stainless steel and protect the wire rope on the inside from the elements when swaged. This is required in order to prevent corrosion in salt water environments. Marine eyes also have a rather shiny, high-brow aesthetic.

Marine stainless steel fittings can be rather expensive compared to stamped eyes. We only recommend using marine eyes for specific applications in extreme environments or when a certain aesthetic is required.
