Hand Crimp Life Line Fittings were first developed by C.S. Johnson in 1967 after extensive testing. These fittings were designed for easy do-it-yourself installation by the boat owner or professional. The Hand Crimp Short Adjuster is typically used on a stern rail in conjunction with a single gate eye to tension that section of gate.
A properly installed hand crimp fitting will hold 65-70% of the breaking strength of 7x7 cable. The proper crimping tool and instructions must be used to ensure a safe installation. Please use a Gill bolt type or lever type crimping tool, both of which are available from Defender. All components are USA MADE from type 316 marine grade stainless steel.
