Dimensions are in inches unless otherwise noted.
Hand swage drop pin studs have a swage shank on one end that requires 3 crimps from a 20 inch Tyler Tool hand swage tool to secure the cable onto the fitting and on the other end, the fitting has a unique "drop pin" that swivels. This fitting is designed to be inserted into a square or round metal post of a cable railing or balustrade system. It works by swiveling the pin into a position parallel with the long axis of the fitting and inserting it into the post. Once inside the post, the pin will swivel on its own into a perpendicular position and prevent the stud from pulling away from the post. These fittings come in two sizes for both 1/8 and 3/16 cable and are made from type 316 stainless steel.
