Custom Build Selection Process
- Select the type of wire you require: KOS Standard 1x19, Compact Strand or KOS Flexible 7x19
- Select the diameter of the wire
Once you are on the correct product page for the wire construction and the diameter, you can enter
- The terminal at the top
- The approximate length of each stay
- The bottom terminal (with or without rigging screw)
These Custom Build Instructions will help you through the process.
For a rough guide, approximate lengths and an educated guess for the terminals will suffice. The decision on whether to replace the turnbuckles dramatically affects the price.
Confirming the correct T terminals to fit your mast backing plates with proper load-bearing seating is extremely important to the integrity of your rig.
However, for an indicative quote, the T terminals are similarly priced for each wire diameter, so it is possible to select a generic one to estimate a price.
The Jimmy Green Rigging Team are always on hand to help you through the entire process by email or telephone.
If the measuring seems daunting, send us the old rigging as a pattern. We'll be able to measure, ask any pertinent questions about the new rig and quote you before starting any work.
