Stainless 2507 is a stainless alloy with greater corrosion resistance than Stainless 316 and is recommended near salt water or pools.
NOTE: For a complete assembly with two field-swaged ends, order our FIELD SWAGED ASSEMBLY, or combine this end with one factory end in a FACTORY SWAGED ASSEMBLY.

This wire rope cable assembly is a great choice for the installer/homeowner to cut cable and swage fittings at the job site. You can order the assemblies before your posts are in and the construction is finished.

Benefits / Technical Information:

  1. Insert through drilled holes in either wood or metal end posts and attach with either ACORN-HEX-WASHER COMBINATION or CABLE QUICK NUT-COVER.

  2. Material: 316 or 2507 Stainless Steel

  3. Stainless 2507 options available for applications near salt water or pools

  4. Size: M8 x 1.25RH for 3/16" cable or M6 x 1.0RH for 1/8" cable.

  5. Drill Size Recommendations for Field Fittings .pdf
See number "6" in the above drawing to see how the FIELD ASSEMBLY THREADED TENSIONER fitting is used.

For this fitting, order the CABLE CUTTER and CABLE CRIMPER tools to HAND SWAGE your wire rope assemblies.

Note: Stainless Steel is highly resistant, but not impervious to the elements, and requires minimal maintenance for ideal results. We recommend applying Passivator to all exposed stainless steel components at the time of installation. In addition, apply Rust Rescue if within 10 miles of a marine environment to further protect the stainless steel. Learn more about these products and general stainless steel care on our Cleaning & Maintenance Page.

5 yrs ago I did my entire railings inside and out through stainless steel. Now I modified my deck and just needed a few parts. They are very helpful and ship quickly. Their stainless is high quality - outside railings are still looking great.
