|Aeronautical Standard thimbles are small parts that can make a big difference in your wire rope assemblies. When used correctly, they protect the eye or loop in a wire assembly from bending or collapse. The thimble is designed to help guide the wire rope into a natural curve, then to secure it at the bottom. Once in place, wire rope clips also add strength and stability to the loop, allowing it to be used for hanging on a hook or similar point. The thimbles help preserve the shape of the loop and act as an extra layer of support. |
Aeronautical Standard thimbles from SkyGeek are available in a variety of sizes and have deep grooves that cradle the cable and help keep it in place. Different sizes of thimbles are used for different applications. Hoisting, winching and rigging are all common uses. Most thimbles are made from materials that are resistant to corrosion and other hazards. They may be plated for additional protection.
