Summary of Cable Fittings

Each component listed is unique from every other component. They are divided into four groups: swaged tensioning and non-tensioning fittings, and swageless tensioning and non-tensioning fittings.

Tensioning and non-tensioning fittings

Cables must be tensioned, so there needs to be a tensioner on at least one end of each cable. On many cable runs, a tensioner can be used on one end and a non-tensioner fitting can be used on the other end. Non-tensioning devices are generally less expensive than tensioners.

Swaged vs. swageless fittings

Swaging is a term used for attaching fittings to cables. Swaged and swageless fittings can be used together on the same cable, as long as one end has a tensioning device.

Swaged Fittings. Generally less expensive than swageless fittings, swaged fittings require special equipment to swage the fittings onto the cables. On larger jobs, the savings in using swaged fittings may more than offset the cost of renting or purchasing the swaging equipment or having the fittings swaged onto the cables by a distributor or the factory.

Swageless Fittings. Generally more expensive than swaged fittings, swageless fittings offer the convenience of installation of the fittings onto the cables by hand, without the need for special equipment.
