*U-Bolts and Nuts are Zinc Plated

**Based on Clean, un-lubricated threads. Table above shows minimum torque required to reach maximum holding power of wire rope clip. Warning: Malleable wire rope clips are not to be used for overhead lifting.

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.
