Threaded terminals are a basic, simple and cost effective way to terminate a cable railing. All of the models below are SS Type 316. The machine thread goes thru the end post and a nut fastens on the back of the end post with the exception of the lag swage model which threads directly into a wooden post. The hand swage threaded terminal is designed for field installation. Machine swage threaded terminal is typically fabricated by Lexco because it requires hydraulic compression.
Classic turnbuckles are all comprised of four subcomponents. Threaded terminal (crimps to the cable & threads into the body) Closedpipe turnbuckle body (includes a thru hole on center for fine tune adjustment) A termination that connects the body to the end post (comes in different styles that lend themselves to different end post materials, shapes and dimensions) Jam nuts (allows the ideal take-up setting to be locked into place under tension for low maintenance)
The Cablecraft hardware you’ll find within here can be sold a la carte but we can also build it into your Cablecraft Push-Pull control. Rod ends in a push-pull control have an external thread that conveniently threads into rod ends and ball joints. They are convenient, versatile linkage solutions. Strap clevis are typically retained by a swaged cable fitting. There are circumstances where they can be placed onto threaded ends and retained by a nut. Strap clevis’ are best suited for pull-only controls. We also can supply thread-on clevis’ upon request. Wire stops are typically used on commercial pull-only controls. They can be installed on up to a 18” inner cable. U-Bolts and shim clamps allow you to mount and stabilize your Cablecraft push-pull control. This is important to reduce loss of energy during actuation.

When hand crimped, aluminum button stops provide a holding strength approximately 13 that of rated cable strength, whereas, when machine swaged, up to 50% of the cable break strength can be achieved. This higher holding strength is one reason why Lexco prefers to prefabricate our customers cable assemblies. It is recommended that a pull test be performed to verify holding strength. Aluminum button stops are available for cable diameters from 116” to 516”. While the length of aluminum button stops are standard, they can be special ordered in longer lengths. For example, in 116”, the standard length is 0.156”, but Lexco also stocks an extra long 116” model with 0.397” length. Lexco’s aluminum button stops are available with certificates of RoHS conformance upon request. Note: The holding strength of an aluminum button stop is affected by the construction of the cable onto which it is installed. A button stop installed on a 7x7 cable will yield a different holding strength than an identical button stop installed on a 1x19 cable, for example.
Lexco Cable offers Safe-Line wire rope clamps to meet FF-C-450 Type IV and MS16843 specifications. These clamps are designed only for use with 6x19 class IWRC and 7x19 right regular lay constructions. Available sizes range from 18” to 34". Safe-Line wire rope clips are cadmium plated and include a two-piece plug and cold-finish bar steel socket. They provide clean profiles similar to swaged fittings, because only one piece is needed per loop. When properly installed, they are rated to 90% efficiency of the cable’s nominal break strength.
Stainless steel button stops are also called stainless steel cylindrical terminals. They will hold to the breaking strength of the wire rope to which they’re attached (except for strand such as 1x7 and 1x19 construction wire rope). It is recommended that a pull test be performed to verify holding strength. Standard stainless steel button stops are SS Type 303304, but they can be quoted in SS Type 316 upon request. See below for Boeing BACT14A.
For applications where it makes sense to use a member with more rigidity than cablestrand, thread rod may be appropriate. Lexco Cable carries high quality threaded rodtie rod components. We can fabricate and assembly your required through rod assembly, and we also offer everything customers need to create complete tie rod systems, including: Clevis Adjustable Yoke End Clevis Pins Threaded Rod One important design factor on thread rod assemblies is thread direction. If one is using a piece of all-thread rod, it’s typical to install a turnbuckle body at one end. Turnbuckle bodies have left-hand thread on one side and right-hand thread on the other. Adjustable yoke ends are a great alternative to clevises in thread sizes up to 34". Clevises are generally more expensive than adjustable yoke ends because clevises are all custom. If ordering a clevis, please specify thread tap, grip, and pin-hole sizes. Adjustable yoke ends and clevises are sometimes used on cable assemblies because they can be threaded onto studs. Clevises and adjustable yoke ends generally do not come with clevis pins included, so please specify if your application requires clevis pins.
Most common two constructions for nylon coating are 7x7, 7x19 and upon special request we can supply 1x7, 1x19, 6x19 Class and 6x37 Class. Typical nylon coated diameters are 364 thru 58. The outside diameter is laser micrometer inspected during extrusion. Our extrusion line is equipped with a black ink printer capable of printing onto the nylon coating. Our nylon extrusion tooling is cleaned on a regular basis to improve the coating quality. Common applications: Conveyor Fitness equipment Mechanical control Misc lanyards and tethers Brake Cables
A hand crimped copper button stop will provide a holding strength approximately 13 that of rated cable strength. Machine swaged copper button stops provide up to 50% of the cable’s break strength. Greater holding strength is one reason why Lexco prefers to prefabricate our customers’ cable assemblies. A pull test is always recommended to verify a button stop’s holding strength. Copper button stops are available for cable diameters from 116” to 516”. Standard button stops feature a plain finish. Zinc plated copper button stops are available upon request.
Kwik-Loc® cable jointers are ideal for numerous field-installed aircraft cable loop applications. They are a fast, reliable way to suspend static loads. Lexco Cable offers a variety of Kwik-Loc®cable jointers designed for use with varying weight loads and cable diameters from 132” to 316”.
Lexco Cable carries a variety of cable crimping tools designed for use with cable from 132” to 38" in diameter. From the best-selling, versatile, 5-cavity Model 1SC (HSC600) to single cavity models to battery operated models to specialty architectural (cable railing) models, Lexco offers a wide selection. These hand crimp tools are designed for crimping sleeves, crimping aluminum and copper button stops, and select other fittings, but are not universal and cannot be used to swage every wire rope fitting we offer. For example, some fittings that are typically not designed for manual or simple crimping include ball ends, stamped eyelets, and many threaded studsplugs. If you are unsure which cable crimping tool your application requires, or if you have questions about tools for specialty applications, please contact Lexco Cable for assistance.
Lexco Cable fabricates fitness cables for OEM or aftermarket replacement. Fitness cables will use some industrial fittings like thimbles, sleeves, threaded studs and single shank balls but fitness cable sometimes use specialty fittings. These include ball stoppers and thru hole cap screws. We can provide these items in bulk or pre-fabricated. We stock nylon coated cable for fitness cable applications. Fitness cable is widely used on weight lifting equipment.
Lexco Cable offers a variety of swageless end fittings for use in cable assembly systems from 116” to 1 ½” diameter. Our swageless fittings require no* special tools for assembly, making field installation quick and easy. Most swageless cable end fittings will hold the maximum load of the cable to which they’re attached when installed correctly. Swageless fittings are manufactured from self-colored steel, zinc plated steel, galvanized steel and stainless steel. Our large selection of swageless cable end fittings makes it easy to find the right one for your application. Swageless fittings: Clevis (fork, jaw) Eye end Oval Eye, Drum Socket & Coupling Fittings Threaded Stud Turnbuckles Non-Bearing Hooks and Eye Swivels Lifeline Fittings Safe-Line Clamps MIL-STD-16843, FF-C-450 Type IV
The one thing all of these Swageless Wire Rope Fittings have in common is that there is no crimping. The swageless fittings that you’ll find on this page are designed for cable railings. There’s two reasons for that, one is that they’re Type 316 SS and the other is they’re designed for normal working load limits needed to tension cable railing. The push-lock and pull-lock designs are the fastest to install because you insert the cable and it self-locks with the internal springs. The other designs utilize a plug (sometimes called a cone or wedge) which must be manually placed on to the center wire(s) prior to securing the outer fitting housing. These swageless wire fittings designed for wire rope fittings are field installed
Here’s some accessories such as fasteners that are useful in cable railing installations depending on your end fitting design. Some of the items include acorn nuts, beveled and flat washers and post protector sleeves. Please call us if you cannot find what you’re looking for or have questions.
Threaded Plug: Short overall length Cost effective Typically machined, swaged, hex Threaded plugs do not necessarily hold 100% wire rope strength. A pull test is recommended for qualification. Of this product category, the threaded plugs are the most customizable.
Tiller clamps are made for temporary or security connections in non-load bearing applications. They allow for fast, easy connection when securing two assemblies together or when forming a loop from a single cable. Lexco Cable offers tiller clamps with your choice of fastening bolt: Allen, Phillips, or Tamper-Proof. The Tamper-Proof bolt is ideal for retail or trade show environments. The Phillips bolt is suitable for E-stop lanyards. Tiller clamps have a plain zinc finish and upon special request we can furnish them with a black finish, desirable for high-end security lanyards. Our tiller clamps are available in 3mm and 4mm sizes, both made from top quality die-cast zinc.
Lexco Cable’s commercial and MIL SPEC MS20668 eye ends are manufactured from stainless steel. Commercial eye ends are typically made from 316 stainless steel, while MS20668 eye ends are SS304. Our MS20668 eye ends are made in the USA; commercial eye ends of both domestic and imported origin are available. Our eye ends are available in various sizes to accommodate cable from 116” to 1” in diameter. Machine or roller swaging is required for installation. Cable assemblies using eye ends can be quickly and easily connected to assemblies with fork ends by fitting the two together and inserting a clevis pin. Our MS20668 eye ends do not include clevis pins or cotter pins (must be ordered separately).
Lexco Cable is proud to distribute Felco cable cutters, the world’s recognized leader in precision cable cutters. Felco cable cutting tools are designed to cut cable between 2mm and 34” in diameter. They are built to last and easily outperform the competition.
There a few similarities between generic push-pull and non-push-pull cable assemblies. 1. Size reference. Most popular inner cable size is 116* 2. There aren’t support (guide) tubes on these assemblies 3. Many of our customers use a pull-only or return spring type 4. Most cable fitting are common air craft fittings used for non-push-pull as well 5. Typically this category uses Bowden conduit – 5a. 316* Bowden also houses 116 inner cable 5b. Smaller diameter also called light duty 5c. We work best when we can pre-fabricate, however we can also supply large – bulk quantities as well.
Our carbon steel button stops are machined from material specially selected for swaging. All carbon stops are designed to be machined swaged only. Compression via hydraulic press is required to achieve the correct post-swage diameter.
SS Threaded Stud: SS threaded studs are heavy duty. Thread size is often twice the corresponding wire rope diameter. They are typically-Type 303 or 304 but can be special ordered in Type 316 UNC Thread can be UNF Do not have a wrench flat but can be special ordered Machine swaged, round Longer thread length can be ground by special request Larger sizes also available by special request
Threaded terminals with receivers are a step up in design from threaded terminals with nut. The receiver hides some or all of the machine thread which makes for a cleaner look. Of all of the threaded terminals with receiver offered, Invisiware has the most minimalistic appearance. The Invisiware option you can choose multiple receiver lengths to match any end post. Also the Invisiware receivers are great for vertical cable rail applications.
Lexco Cable offers open swage sockets in both carbon steel and stainless steel material. Plating and galvanizing for carbon steel swage sockets is available upon request. Our open swage sockets are available in various standard sizes to accommodate cable from 14" to 1-12” in diameter. Clevis pins are typically included with all models. Open swage sockets are extremely similar to forkjaw ends. However, open swage sockets have larger dimensions, most notably their clevis diameters, inside widths, and depths below pin. Additionally, open swage sockets are made from forgings, while forkjaw ends are either cast or machined. Open swage sockets must be machine swaged for proper hold strength. Please contact a Lexco sales representative to receive an assembly quote.
in eye terminals are distinguishable from other cable eye ends because of their head dimensions. The head is narrower and thicker than other eye end styles. Lexco Cable’s pin eye terminals are similar in design to our rod ends, the main difference being that pin eye terminals have been drilled with a cable hole. Our pin eye terminals are drop-forged from self-coloring C-1035 carbon steel. Plating and galvanizing are available upon request. Stainless steel pin eye terminals are also available upon special request. Our pin eye terminals are available in a range of sizes to accommodate wire rope from 18” to 34" in diameter.
When installed onto general purpose wire rope, closed swage sockets offer up to five times longer life than spelter sockets. An independent research study has proven that swaged sockets have superior fatigue life than other commonly used types of boom pendants. End fittings for large diameter wire ropes and strand are typically referred to as “sockets.” The word “closed” here indicates that there is an eye shape at the end of the fitting. Lexco Cable offers closed swage sockets in carbon steel or stainless steel construction. Plating and galvanizing of carbon steel closed swage sockets is available upon request. Our closed swage sockets are available in various sizes to accommodate cable from 14" to 3” in diameter.
Lexco Cable’s galvanized anchor shackles are manufactured to meet Federal Spec RR-C-271 Type IV-A Grade A. Galvanized carbon steel anchor shackles are the most common and widely used variety, as they are appropriate for both indoor and outdoor applications. Anchor shackles are bow shaped, similar to a boat anchor. Anchor shackles are available with screw-pin, round-pin, and safety bold fastener options. We offer both domestic (Made in the USA) and imported galvanized anchor shackles. Please specify your preference of fastener and origin, if any.
Bolt snaps, snap hooks, and trigger snaps are designed for fast, easy connections. Lexco Cable carries a large variety of both, in a range of sizes and shapes. Snap hooks, bolt snaps, and trigger snaps are designed for light to heavy duty applications, from dog leashes to luggage to marine, agricultural, and construction applications.. We stock zinc- and nickel-plated steel and stainless steel varieties. Our snap hooks and bolt snaps are available with an array of end connectors, including rigid eyes, swivel eyes, and clevises, to meet the needs of any application. Most bolt snaps and snap hooks feature spring-loaded closures opposite their end connectors, for fast and easy attachment.
Die cast wire rope and cable end fittings are created by injecting molten zinc directly onto a cable end inside a custom die. Lexco Cable offers die cast fittings made to your specifications, no matter how unique your design. Specialty shapes such as barrels, bullets, Z-shape, L-shape, and the like are easily manufacturable as die cast fittings. Some of our “standard” fittings, such as ball ends and eyelets can also be manufactured via die casting. These fittings perform just as well as traditional fittings, and eliminate a good portion of the labor cost associated with conventional swaging. Most of our die cast fittings are made-to-order, and therefore require an associated tooling fee. However, customers with high volume orders may see significant cost savings over traditionally machined fittings.
MS21259 Stud: The MS21259 Studs include a wrench flat and inspection hole. They are UNF thread, SS and hold to breaking strength of 7x7 & 7x19 aircraft cable or rope constructions to 19x7, 6x19 Class IWRC, Class 6x37 Class IWRC.
Lexco Cable has the components necessary to create a tamper- or theft-resistant architectural cable rail system for commercial and municipal applications where damage or theft may be of concern. The key components for tamper- and theft-proof architectural cable railings are specialty end fittings. These jaw-end components utilize security bolts instead of traditional clevis pins, and can be fitted with special locking nuts for even greater safety and security.
The distinguishing feature of smooth line turnbuckles is that the thread is completely internalized. The result is an appearance with no visible threads which makes for an exceptionally clean design. Smooth line turnbuckles lend themselves to hand crimping in the field for two reasons. One, you can’t see crimp marks on the compression fitting because it’s hidden inside the turnbuckle body. Two, due to a 12” O.D. of the turnbuckle body, prefabricated assemblies would require large thru holes on the intermediate post than what you can achieve by field crimping smooth line turnbuckles.
Lexco Cable’s stainless steel anchor shackles are manufactured from Type 316 stainless steel for exceptional corrosion resistance. They are ideal for outdoor applications, especially in marine or other harsh environments. Anchor shackles are bow shaped, similar to a boat anchor. Drop forged and cast stainless steel anchor shackles are available. Anchor shackles are available with screw-pin, round-pin, and safety bolt fastener options. We stock both domestic (Made in the USA) and imported anchor shackles. Please specify your preference of construction type, fastener type, and origin, if any. While stainless steel materials are not covered under Federal Spec RR-C-271, we can supply stainless steel shackles that match the dimensional requirements of this specification.
The tools you’ll find here within are designed for field installation of cable end fittings. There’s two types of tools within this product line. First, you’ll find three hand crimp tools which are 53-215 and 64-CGMP (64-CGMP is sold with or without a built in cutter). These three tools are compatible with 18” diameter and 316” diameter hand crimp cable end fittings. These hand crimp tools are sold and not rented.
Lexco Cable offers both commercial and Naval-spec (NAS1435-E) strap eyes. When installed, a strap eye is not swaged directly onto the cable, but rather swivels on an end fitting such as a single shank ball, allowing the load to rotate without putting stress on the cable. Commercial strap eyes are available in two types. The first mimics the dimensions of NAS1435-E strap eyes, while the second type does not. NAS1435-E strap eyes are manufactured from stainless steel Type 304. All our strap eyes are available in various sizes to accommodate standard cable diameters between 364” and 316”.
