Thimbles are designed to extend the longevity wire rope loops by preventing fraying caused by friction at the bearing point. Thimbles must be used in conjunction with either sleeves or wire rope clips/clamps.

Lexco Cable offers thimbles in a variety of materials, such as plated and galvanized thimbles for indoor and mild outdoor work environments, and stainless steel thimbles for corrosive or outdoor environments, including marine applications.
