They do what it says on the tin!
Make a neat finish to the job.
Will have to wait and see whether the sea air affects them long-term.

Very Useful - can save a lot
These accessories can help bring a really great finish to simple wire rope applications like garden trellis and much cheaper than buying specific fixings. It is a real shame that the neither the catalogue, website nor packaging carry any instructions of their correct use, nor indicate a cheap crimping tool.
Adapting some of the earlier reviews I had great success. I placed the rope in the long ferrules to make an eyelet, then in my bench vice I taped a large round nail to the centre of each face, then aligned the completed eyelet in the jaws so the nails sat in the natural groove. Finally just tighten the vice and it gives a really professional crimp more than strong enough for garden use. Looks great as trellis for my grape vine with some small turnbuckles to help tension.
