Swage Sockets

Crosby® S-501 / S-501B Swage Sockets

  • Forged from special bar quality carbon steel, suitable for cold forming.
  • Swage socket terminations have an efficiency rating of 100% based on the catalog strength of wire rope.
  • Hardness controlled by spheroidize annealing.
  • Stamp for identification after swaging without concern for fractures (as per directions in Wire Rope End Terminations User’s Manual).
  • Swage sockets incorporate a reduced machined area of the shank which is equivalent to the proper 'after swage' dimension. Before swaging, this provides for an obvious visual difference in the shank diameter. After swaging, a uniform shank diameter is created allowing for a QUIC-CHECK® and permanent visual inspection opportunity.
  • S-501 Swage Sockets are recommended for use with 6 x 19 or 6 x 37, IPS or XIP (EIP), XXIP (EEIP), RRL, FC or IWRC wire rope.
  • In accordance with ASME B30.9, all slings terminated with swage sockets shall be proof loaded.*
