Select Option 1 - Choose your terminal Select Option 2 - Select the wire to enter your finished length. This will be the length from bearing edge to bearing edge. Select Option 3 - Choose your terminal option for the other end
N.B. The website will accept a length to 3 decimal points. However, this is not always practicable. The Jimmy Green Rigging Team aim for a bearing edge to bearing edge measurement which is accurate to within + or - the diameter of the wire.
The Jimmy Green Rigging Team Finished Length Process for Wire Rigging
Do it yourself Guard Wires with a termination at one end only You can order each wire with a terminal at one end adding a little extra length to be on the safe side. Thread the wires through the stanchions, cut to length in situ and fit a Petersen or Sta-Lok swageless DIY terminal on the second end. This is a good solution if the holes through the stanchions are too small in diameter to allow a swaged fitting to pass through comfortably. Generally, the holes will need to be a minimum 8mm internal diameter clearance to accept a swaged stud for 4mm 1x19 wire.
Additional Information The terminal price includes the talurit or roller swaging process.
Bearing Edge to Bearing Edge:
The picture shows examples for the Bearing Edge - The point from which your measurements will be taken.
Measurements on Swaged Studs will be from the extreme end of the thread.
The Jimmy Green Rigging Team aim to produce your rigging within a tolerance of + or - the diameter of the wire.
All adjustable end fittings will be set at the 2/3 open position unless otherwise requested.
