Wedge Socket - Assembly Instructions
Check the wire rope dimension and possible damage before installation of the wedge. Also check that the marking on wedge house and wedge accord to the wire rope dimension.
Pull the wire rope through the wedge house so the "bearing" part aligns with the attachment point. Put the wedge in the eye, load the rope and check that the rope and the wedge are right placed in the wedge house.
Assemble an additional wire rope clips, as close as possible to the wedge house, at the bended free end of the wire rope as a "safety lock". This will restrain the wedge to get loose by possible slack wire.
For wire rope in bigger size, an extra piece of wire rope with the same dimension as the current rope will be assembled in the additional clips, parallel to the free end of the rope.
WARNING! Mistaken installation of wedges can result in wire rope damage and incomplete strength in the bond. Test load the rope before it is put into service.
