Wire Rope Thimbles
A Wire Rope Thimble is a helper guide or type of eyelet to form a wire rope eye into a smooth loop, and provide resistance to fraying. This addition of a wire rope thimble to the eye consequently protects the rope by guiding it into a natural curve and creating an extra layer of support. Adding this protection not only provides a measure of safety, but it also increases the working life of the wire rope.
Common applications of Wire Rope Thimbles are:
- • Rigging
- • Sailing
