These slim Hi-MOD compression fittings are at least as strong as the rated breaking load of the rigging wire, and they work equally well with right/left hand lay wire. No sealant or packing needed, with special star-shaped crown rings that hold wire strands in place, eliminating awkward "wire end bending." The shallow angled cone establishes direct mechanical grip on the wire's core and all the outer strands.
- Constructed from 316 stainless steel, with aluminum/bronze crown rings, they can be taken apart for maintenance and re-used without the need for new parts (provided that no overloading has occurred)
- Limited lifetime warranty
