Bronze Rope Thimbles are made from a high strength, noncorrosive, nonsparking nickle-aluminum bronze alloy. This rope thimble was developed primarily for use with nylon, manila, polypropylene, and Polyvinyl chloride ropes. Four rings or “keepers” secure the rope from jumping out of the thimble. Seventeen sizes are available in rope-diameters from 3/8" to 4-3/4".
 
 

 

 

 

COMPOSITE THIMBLE963_Thimble_Orkot_CM2012.jpg
PRODUCT CODE: 963

The Composite Thimble is a means of attaching synthetic ropes to other ropes or equipment, typically via a shackle. Products made from composite materials have exceptional wear resistance and limited swelling in water, which provides dimensional stability. They offer resistance to edge loading and misalignment even with the heaviest loads, and are appropriately suited to handle the high loading associated with high performance (Class II) ropes.
 

GALVANIZED HD WIRE THIMBLE
PRODUCT CODE: 924

The Wire Thimble protects against wear and deformation of the rope eye. Designed with the proper bending radius to maintain rope strength and provide longer service life. This thimble meets the performance requirements of Federal Specifications FF-T-276b Type III (except for those provisions required of the contractor.)

HEAVY DUTY HAWSER THIMBLE
PRODUCT CODE: 933

The cast-steel Heavy Duty Hawser Thimble is designed for use with wire rope or high-performance synthetic fiber ropes such as AmSteel®-Blue, Force-8, and DPX-75.The galvanized thimble provides smooth and even grooves, maximum strength in critical areas, and the proper bending radius for the rope. When used
with synthetic ropes, the thimble eye should be lashed at approximately 2, 4, 8, and
10 o’clock on the thimble circumference to secure it to the rope when not in service.
