Bevel washers are used with eye bolts to correct taper when used on I-beams and other structural applications.
Rigging hooks are attached to chains, ropes, and slings to lift and move large loads.
Shackles, Links & Couplings
A shackle is a U-shaped piece of metal secured with a clevis pin or bolt across the opening. They are used to make connections to slings, rope, cable, etc. Shackles are the primary connecting link in all manner of rigging systems as they allow different rigging subsets to be connected or disconnected quickly.
Turnbuckles are commonly used in rigging to apply tension and reduce slack in lengths of rope or cable. Our selection of carbon steel and stainless steel turnbuckles includes jaw-and-jaw, eye-and-eye, and hook-and-eye configurations.
Wire Rope Clamps & Clips
Wire rope clamps, also called cable clamps or U-bolt clips, are used to fix the loose end of a wire rope after it has been looped to form an eye. These clamps consist of a U-shaped bolt and a saddle with two nuts. Two layers of wire rope are placed inside the U-bolt and two or three clamps are required to properly secure the looped end to the rope.
Wire Rope Thimbles
Wire rope thimbles protect the eye or loop of wire rope assemblies from abrasion and deformation. They provide a solid barrier and sturdy structure to withstand damage to the cable strands from other rigging fittings.
