These Nicopress sleeves are our preferred method of securing wire rope / aircraft cable and what we use for installations. Requires appropriate Nicopress-brand tool to crimp and secure connection, make sure to have a Nicopress Go-NoGo gauge handy to confirm proper crimping. While we call this a Swage, it's also known as a Ferrule or Sleeve.
Nicopress sleeves are used for making eye and lap splices on wire rope. They are economical and can hold approximately 100% of the cable's rated breaking strength, depending on the cable size and type used, and conform to MS51844. Nicopress has determined through pull-testing that Nicopress Oval Sleeves will hold military specification grade aircraft cable in tension until it breaks, when the cable is made to military specifications for 3x7, 7x7, 7x19 and 6x19 IWRC and correctly applied with Nicopress Tools.
