The ornamental Rig Guy wire stop measures only 11/16" wide by 1/2" long. It was specifically developed for use on smaller trees such as Dogwoods and Bradford Pears. For use with 3/16" EHS cable.
The wire stop eliminates the need for lags, thimbles, through bolts, wraps, wire clips, or other terminal hardware. It can be used in more applications because it is secured on the outside of the limb or trunk. It makes a more finished, less cluttered, installation because of its small size and simplicity.
The internal taper of Rigguy's wire stop fits over the middle strand of 7-strand EHS cable with the six remaining strands surrounding it. The more pressure that is applied, the deeper into the block the strand and taper are pulled. The block is made of aluminum and taper is made of stainless steel for strength and corrosion resistance.
