Commonly used on small diameter pulleys, running rigging on sailboats, exercise equipment, winches and control cables. 7x19 is the best all around cable for most applications.

This is 304 stainless steel cable with a clear vinyl coating. It provides additional corrosion resistance, high flexibility, superior appearance and abrasion resistance. 304 stainless steel cable (also known as 18-8) is the most common type of stainless steel cable. It offers better corrosion resistance, but lower strength than galvanized cable.

In order to achieve maximum strength on vinyl coated cable, please remove the vinyl coating from the cable in the area where the wire rope clip, sleeve, or button will be affixed. When selecting termination fittings for vinyl coated cable, select the fitting that is sized to the diameter of the cable, not the diameter of the coating. If you affix the termination fitting over the vinyl coating, the strength of the assembly will be greatly reduced.
