What is a stop end fitting?
Stop fittings are a type of swage end fitting that stand apart because they can be swaged anywhere on an assembly, even in the middle of a cable. Because of its cylindrical shape, the end fitting permits rotation of the wire rope lanyard.
How does Tyler Madison use stop end fittings?
We primarily use stop end fittings whenever the customer expresses a need for a mechanical wire rope cable assembly that has rotational ability.
How does Tyler Madison adhere stop end fittings?
We make a stop end fitting permanent by sliding it onto a set point of the cable and then compressing it via a hydraulic swage machine.
What materials does Tyler Madison use to make stop end fittings?
Most stop end fittings are composed of copper, aluminum, carbon steel or stainless steel. Some of the Carbon and stainless steel stops can even hold up to the breaking strength of the cable.
Can I get stop end fittings made using a non-standard material?
Of course! Keep in mind though, that because it’s our goal to make you the highest quality product for the lowest cost, we reserve the right to try to steer you away from a material that isn’t recommended for your application (not resistant to corrosion, not strong enough, etc.).
