Sockets are used on a variety of applications including Hoist, Balance, Guide and Sinking Ropes.
The Socket attachment offers a safe, economical connection and can be installed with either the quick and efficient Wirelock Resin or Zinc.
With special Threaded STT and STJ Type Sockets, a wide range of Jaw or Tang ends can be made to suit most required connections without a Link Plate.
Our standard SJ (non-threaded) Sockets normally require an Adapter Link Plate, adding both cost and bulk but are preferred in some installations.
All Sockets are designed with a minimum of 10:1 Factor of Safety, Proof Load Tested to 2 ½ times Safe Working Load, Ultrasonically and Wet Magnetic Particle Inspected. All meet or exceed National Coal Board Standards.
Sockets are customer designed to suit customer needs.
