Wire Rope Carpenter Stoppers

This is a portable method of gripping and holding a steel wire rope without causing kinks or damaging the rope.

The rope sits inside a cast wedge manufactured to accomodate the specified wire rope size. As the load is applied to the wire rope the wedge slides deeper into the tapered housing.

The stopper is designed so that it can be opened and closed by one man offering portability, safety, reliability and versatility.

  • Proofloaded to 1.5 x SWL
  • Manufactured to suit wire sized from 8mm to 76mm
  • Larger sizes available upon request
