Product Overview

Protect wire rope loops from damage caused by chafing.

Shackles are ideal for connecting loops in wire rope or three strand lines, but they are a constant wear point that can grind away at the wire or rope and weaken it. Using a thimble while creating  loops provides an excellent way to protect the cable or rope and serves as a guide for just the right radius in the loop. These 304 stainless steel thimbles are corrosion resistant and strong enough to match the high loads carried by wire rope products. Available in 11 sizes to match wire diameter for a perfect fit and perfect loop. Create wire rope pennants and bridles that will last, by installing chafe protection using a stainless steel thimble.

Key Features

  • Ideal for adding chafe protection to loops in wire rope or three-strand line
  • 304 stainless construction for corrosion resistance
  • Available in sizes from 1/6"—1" to fit a wide range of cable
  • Packaged in 1, 2, 4 packs depending on size
