Though they are more costly type fittings, swageless cable railing and balustrade fittings eliminate the need for swaging, a swaging tool and the unsightly crimp marks left by the swaging tool on the hand swage fittings. Swageless fittings are secured onto the cable ends by inserting the cable end into a small brass cone. The outer section of the fitting is then threaded over the cable end with brass fitting and as the outer section is tightened, it compresses the brass cone onto the cable end to make a tight and secure termination. Swageless fittings come in several style variations that include threaded stud, jaw, eye and turnbuckle. All swageless cable rail type fittings are made from high quality type 316 corrosion resistant stainless steel.
