  1. The correct way to attach wire rope clips is illustrated above. Apply the first clip one base width from the dead end of the wire rope. The base or saddle should bear on the line end of the rope - U-bolt on the short end Tighten nuts firmly.
  2. Attach second clip as close to loop as possible. Tighten nuts but not firmly.
  3. Attach balance clips spaced equally between first two clips. Tighten all nuts completely. Apply initial load - inspect nuts and retighten. Inspect all clips periodically.

The number of clips shown is based on using right regular or Large lay wire rope, 6x19 class or 6x37 class, fibre core IWRX, IPS or XIPS. The number of clips shown also applies to right regular lay wire rope,
8x19 class and 18x7 class, fibre core, IPS or XIPS, sizes 1-1/2 inch and smaller.

If  Seal  construction  or  similar  large  outer  wire  type  construction in the 6x19 class is to be used for sizes 1-inch and larger, add one additional clip. For other classes or wire rope not mentioned, it may be necessary to add additional clips to the number shown, if more clips are used than shown, amount of rope turn back should be increased proportionately.
