Neat and secure

"I used these with the screwfix 4mm wire rope and they provided a very neat finish. Once the gizmo is tightened onto the wire rope it is very secure and will not release. I used the Irwin vice grip mole wrench to tighten the accessories on to the rope"

"I used these with 4mm stainless steel rope to attach wires to a frame to support apple trees. Made a really neat job. I used a large mole wrench to crush the aluminium onto the rope wire."

Very Useful - can save a lot

"These accessories can help bring a really great finish to simple wire rope applications like garden trellis and much cheaper than buying specific fixings. It is a real shame that the neither the catalogue, website nor packaging carry any instructions of their correct use, nor indicate a cheap crimping tool.
Adapting some of the earlier reviews I had great success. I placed the rope in the long ferrules to make an eyelet, then in my bench vice I taped a large round nail to the centre of each face, then aligned the completed eyelet in the jaws so the nails sat in the natural groove. Finally just tighten the vice and it gives a really professional crimp more than strong enough for garden use. Looks great as trellis for my grape vine with some small turnbuckles to help tension.

Instructions?

"I bought these to fix some wire ropes for plants to climb. It isn't clear what to do with them, and some intructions would help. In the end I passed the wire through the 8-shape to make a loop, and put the end cap on the end and whacked the fitting with a sledge hammer to compress the fittings against the wire. This appears to work well, but wouldn't suit every occassion. The wire is very taught and they don't seem to slip."
