Rigging – Swage Fitting, Stay Lock, Norseman Fittings, Swageless

To attach wire rigging to the chainplates, you use fittings whether swage or swageless. Examples of swageless fittings include Stay Lock (Sta-Lok) and Norseman.

Cracked Swage Fitting

Cracked Swage Fitting

Swage Fitting
The old stand-by way is swaging. By crimping a sleeve, riggers crunch and secure the wire cable. You need swaging tools. The process is the least do-it-yourself friendly. It is also the least expensive way. Swage fittings are less durable than the other fittings below and tend to crack before the end of wire’s lifespan as seen in the photo to the right.

Swageless
Norseman, Stay Lock, Hayn HiMod, and Suncor are types of swageless fittings easier than swaging for do-it-yourself work. The fittings are more durable than swage sleaves but more expensive. Norseman and Stay Lock are the most common. With a Norseman the wire fitting screws over the threaded eye fitting. With a Stay Lock, the wire fitting screws into the eye fitting like a lightbulb into a socket. Hi-Mod and Suncor are newer swageless fittings that are supposed to be easier to use, stronger, and more durable.
