I presume the figure-of-eight ferrule needs to be crimped; what is the other circular piece for?
Do you have a recommendation for the crimping (tool you stock or will a hammer and vice suffice)? And finally, any detail on the max safe load in kg?
The figure of eight ferrule needs to be crimped, you could use Klein tools crimping / cutting tool 306mm (5494K).
The circular piece goes on the end of the wire rope to help it from fraying.
Unfortunately we do not have any information on the maximum safe load.
Thank you for using Q&A.
