(Not to be Used for Overhead Lifting)

U-Bolt Clips Twin Base Clips
RECOMMENDED METHOD OF APPLYING U-BOLT WIRE ROPE CLIPS RECOMMENDED METHOD OF APPLYING TWIN BASE WIRE ROPE CLIPS
1. Turn back the specified amount of rope from the thimble. Apply the first clip one base width from the dead end of the wire rope (U-bolt over dead end -- live end rests in clip saddle). Tighten nuts evenly to recommend torque. 1. Turn back the specified amount of rope from the thimble. Apply the first clip one base width from the dead end of the wire rope. Tighten nuts evenly to recommended torque.
2. Apply the next clip as near the loop as possible. Turn on nuts firm but do not tighten. 2.Apply the next clip as near the loop as possible. Turn on nuts firm but do not tighten.
3. Space additional clips if required equally between the first two. Turn on nuts -- take up rope slack -- tighten all nuts evenly on all clips to be recommended torque. 3. Space additional clips if required equally between the first two. Turn on nuts -- take up rope slack -- tighten all nuts evenly on all clips to recommended torque.
4. NOTICE! Apply the initial load and retighten nuts to the recommended torque. Rope will stretch and shrink in diameter when loads are applied. Inspect periodically and retighten. 4. NOTICE!
