    Open Wedge Sockets

     

    wedgesockets

    Open Wedge Sockets combine positive attachment with optimum versatility.
    Easy-to-change Wedge Sockets are a high strength cast alloy steel with charpy value of 25 lbs/ft at -4° F. Each socket accepts at least two different ductile iron wedges. This allows the socket to be used with more than one rope size. Together, wedge and body act as a vise which grips the wire rope and locks it into place. The headed attachment pin is standard and has a charpy value of 25 lbs/ft at -4° F.

    Be sure that the wedge is correct for the wire rope size.
    Each socket manufactured has a model number and acceptable rope sizes cast into its body. Each wedge has the rope size and particular socket model it will fit. Wedges are also coded by means of color. Red indicates that the wedge is for the largest size of wire rope stated on its socket. Green indicates that the wedge is for the smallest size of rope stated on its socket. Blue indicates that the wedge if for a rope size of 9/16 inches. At the time of shipment each socket assembly is clearly identified by a steel-banded plastic tag stating: WEDGE IN THIS SOCKET IS FOR (SIZE) WIRE ROPE ONLY.
