Wire rope sleeves and stops are wire rope accessories used to terminate the ends of wire rope and cable. A wire rope stop may be placed anywhere on the steel cable but is primarily used at the ends to keep the wire rope from fraying. The oval sleeves are used on to make eyes on the end of a wire rope sling or steel cable. Sleeves and stops can be made from a variety of materials depending on their application including aluminum, copper, stainless steel and galvanized steel. Most sleeves and stops utilize a hydraulic press for swaging but some may be "hand swaged" by using a special swage tool. Don't see the sleeve or stop you need here?
