§ For intermediate wire rope sizes use next larger size socket.
* Weight of socket, wedge, and pin.

Wedge for Wedge Socket incorporates a two hole go/no go gauging system which allows for a QUIC CHECK™ inspection ensuring that the proper size wire rope is being used.QUIC-CHECK

  • Basket is cast steel.
  • Individually magnetic particle inspected.
  • Pin diameter and jaw opening allows wedge and socket to be used in conjunction with open swage and spelter sockets.
  • New QUIC CHECK™ "Go" and "No-Go" feature cast into wedge. The proper size wire rope is determined when the following criteria are met: 1. The wire rope should pass thru the "Go" hole in the wedge. 2. The wire rope should NOT pass thru the "No-Go" hole in the wedge.
  • Wedge socket terminations have an efficiency rating of 80%, based on the catalog strength of XIP grade wire rope.
Wedge Sockets meet the performance requirements of Federal Specification RR-S-550D Type C, except for those provisions required of the contractor.
