Economically priced, these swivels contain a single roller bearing that accommodates shorter rope lengths such as those used with lifting equipment. (These applications do not require the exceptionally low torque capability provided by ball bearing-equipped swivels.)
Models with rope diameters of more than 1/4" are equipped with Timken® tapered roller bearings.
Made of alloy steel to exacting tolerances, these swivels are zinc plated for corrosion resistance. They provide an ultimate strength of 5 to 1 over SWL (Safe Working Loads).
Attaching a wire or synthetic rope to a swivel can be accomplished by using the ELECTROLINE® wire rope fitting. This is the best method of attachment and is available on models 60, 63, and 64.
If thimbles with clips are desired, the solid core thimbles shown here are recommended. The cast-steel thimbles are zinc plated and are designed to limit rope wear by preventing the rope from extending beyond the diameter of the swivel.
