Description / Price
Clamping ring / clamping stopper made of stainless steel with a radially-inserted Allen screw, for rope diameters 3 and 4 mm. Pressure base and pressure plate of the Allen screw with special geometry for particularly high clamping forces. Keeps traction slip-free up to about 200 kilograms. Clamping rings with an additional slot/port (for subsequent mounting) are also available at an extra charge; please inquire if needed .>>> Price
The clamping ring is used to keep wire ropes on free-standing frames, garden trellises, pergolas (coming soon in english), etc.. permanently tensioned. With the clamping ring/stopper, the middle or intermediate posts of a wire frame system can also be firmly coupled with the tensioned ropes, and thus stabilised. If necessary, it can also be used on climbing ropes as a "climbing rung." If required, the clamping ring is detachable, allowing the rope to be re-tensioned. Please refer to the general information on cable clamps, etc.. for extra support if needed.
We recommend *not* cutting the ropes exactly to size beforehand, but to leave a projection of 20 - 50 cm... or rather, to work "from the reel." The clamping ring is first loosely slid onto the respective cable. The rope must be cleanly cut and un-crimped beforehand (especially with a diameter of 4 mm), preferably with one of our wire rope scissors. If the rope is inserted several times through posts or the like in large climbing installations, deformations can occur at the end of the rope (e.g by folding over individual rope strands). A piece of rope (2 - 3 cm) may then need to be cut off again using wire rope scissors in order to get a clean cut before threading on the next clamping ring.
The rope to be tightened is then gripped with an assembly vice (or similar) and pulled tight (by hand). Wire ropes need to be cleanly cut for being able to push the clamp ring on; you may check whether you need special wire rope cutters. Push the clamping ring all the way to the stop (wooden post) or whatever you are assembling on. Keep in this position and tighten the setscrew of the clamp. In order to keep the clamp ring from moving or tilting whilst tightening, we suggest a second vice to hold the position of the clamp ring (see photo). The rope is then cut off with a projection of approx. 10 cm. and secured against unraveling with an end sleeve.
The statements on slip resistance are given without guarantee. Ring-shaped marks on the rope might remain after a loosening of the clamp terminal (Allen key).
Body made in Germany (Saxony), grub screw from the Far East.
