Cable Laid Grommets

Cable Laid Grommets have six ropes laid helically around a wire rope core with ends joined by a hand tuck to form an endless body.

Highly flexible, they resist kinks and are easy to handle.

Minimum circumference of the sling is 96 times the grommet body diameter. Circumferences less than 96 times the grommet body diameter are available.

Recommended when Mazzella Split Tuck Core Splice is incorporated into sling fabrication.
