Q:the distances i need to cover are all less than 12' - is there a simple way to cut and re-tip the cable or any creative way to adjust it without cutting (other than wrapping it around a tree)? Thanks

Q:Is it 12 ft total or is each wire 12 feet long? And obviously if you cut them it will no longer have the nice crimped end on that one side.

Answer This Question

A:  Great question, Jan. Any kind of poles are usable with these; they are to be connected to your mounting hardware which works on any surface or pole.

    A:  No poles, all this comes with is the 4 cables. They also sell the connector kits separately.

    Stainless Steel Vinyl Coated wire rope. I got these to hang a sun shade over my deck. I get a lot of southern and western sun. My deck is medium brown Trex, so it can get quite hot with the sun beaming on it. The quality of these cables are excellent. The vinyl coating is definitely a must when handling. The photo of the sun shade is what I have on order. To be in soon. I may have to extend one length with a supplemental short cable to reach one of the tree's I plan on using. To be determined. I hope to have this installed in another month or so, just in time for summer.

    The advantage of purchasing these made up 12' extension wires is that you get a quality vinyl coated wire with exact crimped looped ends. The result is no rust and a connection that is difficult to overload but if it did, there will be no dangerous snap back as in the case of nylon rope or in most forms of organic rope. A big plus with no-stretch wire is that your sail shade will not lose its shape as with most non-wire ropes. This is a quality product with many uses in the home and garden.

    While these wire-ropes are designed to install and retain sun shade sails, they have myriad uses throughout the workplace and home. Each rope is twelve feet long, and coated with very nice grade plastic. The coating makes handling them easy and comfortable. At the end of each rope there is a loop for connecting to a final attachment point, or to easily loop within itself, as the eyelet is large enough for it to pass through itself. See photo. I anticipate this to be good for a tool wall that might have large/tall implements that you want to restrain or keep from falling over. Very quality wire rope.

    These cables were designed for a Rectangular Sun Shade from the COLOURTREE collection. Each Wire Rope is a 1/8inch stranded Stainless Steel Wire that is 12 feet long with a small loop at each end. A 5/16inch bolt is about the largest that will fit in the loop. The loop is held with a 3/4inch long wire cable crimp adapter. The wire between the two crimp adapters is thinly coated with a clear vinyl. This is similar to the wire in my clothesline. The working load for this cable is 900 pounds. Attaching the cables is the key. Loop one end of the cable through an object eyelet and back through the loop at the other end of the cable. Pull up the slack and fasten the free end. You can only use one loop on a cable as the free end cannot be put back through the opposite end. The free end will have to be secured another way using just the loop. A cable loop can be fit over a screw or nail. If there are heavy weights, the screw or nail can be bent so keep the screw or nail head screwed down close to the attachment surface. Additionally you can put the screw or nail through one or two washers before inserting it into the loop and then through another washer before putting it into the attachment surface. Two cable can be connected. Here are 4 suggestions: You may have others. Method 1: One way you could do it with two cables with large loops is to put one end of cable 1 through a loop of Cable 2; take that same loop for cable 1 to the opposite loop of cable 2; and put the loop of Cable 2 loop through the Cable 1 loop; and pull each free end to take up the slack. This procedure normally gets the two loops to entangle so they do not pull apart. This cable has a problem in that the loops are small and bind on the crimp adapters. It will take two people (one prying up on the loops to go over the adapters while the other pulls on the cable ends). Getting the loops over the adapter ends seem to put some strain on the loops. Method 2: Put one end of the second cable through a Cable 1 loop; take the same cable 2 loop and put it into the loop for the opposite end Cable 2 loop. Pull up the slack. This seems to work well and quickly.. Method 3: Put a short 5/16 bolt with washer through one loop from each cable; add a washer and a locking nut; and tighten the nut until there is nearly no clearance between the wire loops and the washers. You can use two nuts instead of a locking nut. This should work. Method 4: Put a metal Carabiner (metal loop with lockable pass-through space) through a loop on each cable. A “Climbers” Carabiner can be rated for 2,400 pounds of force. If you use “just any metal loop” make sure the loop you use is rated more than twice the object weight to be applied to the cable (up to 900 pounds… after that, the wire might break). There are many applications for these cables. 1). Using the cable to prevent boxes from falling off shelves. A large screw into a wood 2x4 at each end of the cable will work. You can disconnect the cable loop and get things up or down from the shelf; and then replace the cable loop end. 2). A wire to keep a tarp cover from sagging across a span. 3). Supporting a free standing (or single side free) shelf from above 4). Tying down a sun shade 5). Hanging pots or planters from a fence or between posts. 6). Reinforcing the diagonal of a gate hung on hinges. 7). Lift a bike up to the rafters of a garage or barn (probably need a pulley also). 8). Stop an object from falling. A falling object’s effective weight is multiplied as a force on the cable when you try to make it stop suddenly. A 50 pound weight can put several hundred pounds of force on the cable as it snaps to a stop.

    The 4 cables appear strong and are very light weight. The weight is important since I will be carrying them in case we need them at a camp site. Each cable measures 12 foot long with a loop at each end. The end loops are small but I was able to get a 150 pound carabiner connector to work with minimal pushing. The are no connectors provided, you need 8 to use all 4 cables I tested hooking the cable to a corner D hock and no problems. Definitely will provide a strong way to connect to distance trees. Could combine two cables to get extra length in one direction. These are really great insurance just in case your site doesn't have trees or connection right where you need them.

    The wires come in handy for multiple reasons. I use them to hang my traps to clean after hauling soil. I recently had a 20ft porch built. I use them to drag my sunshade from side to side to block the direction of the sun. In the picture below I was in the process of moving it to the other side which is why it’s hanging low. They’re sturdy and flexible and feel like it can hold a good amount of weight. I also use them to hang my vacuum hoses to dry.

    There is not a whole lot to say about these cables other than they look like they will work well for hanging the sun shades. The sun shades are not very heavy so the only concern would be in high winds. They are coated with vinyl so there should not be any small broken strands sticking out until the vinyl coating becomes brittle from UV rays. They are stainless steel and that should prevent rusting, but that also depends on the type of stainless steel. Some stainless steel has carbon mixed in & will still rust. The end loops are a sufficient size to use eye hooks or a carabiner clip. I would want to make this easy to put up and take down if there was high winds and definitely in the winter. The loops are secured with a metal crimp which I would assume is stainless steel as well. I have not had issues with other products that have crimped ends like these so I would not expect an issues here.

    Pre-made vinyl coated wire rope guy-wires for stabilizing a vertical pole, tree, mast or similar. Fairly small diameter cable, so not suitable for large trees or masts. Convenient to use, no need to purchase cable and additional hardware separately. Downside is that the looped ends are closed, so require a separate hook or other means to secure to a stake, eyebolt, or similar. Quality is adequate. Country of origin not specified
