Chain and Rope Ireland are now stocked with reeving thimbles. Reeving thimbles are used in wire rope assemblies to form and protect an eye or loop from bending or collapse.
How to create an eye/loop on your wire rope
Step 1: Lace one end of your wire rope through the ferrule, and over the thimble.
Step 2: Feed the wire rope through the ferrule to fit tight around the thimble
Step 3: Once tight, use a swaging or crimping tool to tightly compress the ferrule onto the wire rope, thus securing your loop.
Alternatively: If reusing the rope for different purposes we recommend using wire rope grips which can be used in a similar manner.
