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

I wanted this 4-cable set to replace rope tie downs on my 10x10 Canopy and to secure large tarps. The vinyl coating made the wire easy to handle. It slides through your hands and prevents a stray strand of wire raking across your skin. The vinyl coating stops at the aluminum sleeves and does not cover the loops. The looped ends are secured with a crimped aluminum sleeve. The crimping is uniform and the sleeve retains a round shape. The loops are very secure, and you don’t have to worry about them pulling from the crimped sleeve. This steel cable is rated at a working load of 900 Lbs. capacity. The largest diameter stainless steel spring hook or carabiner you can use with this cable set is 5/16 inch. A 5/16 diameter carabiner was a very tight fit though. I had to press down on the loop to make the opening rounder so I could get the carabiner through the loop. If you don’t have a hook, you can run the other end of the cable through the loop to form a closed end. (See Image Below) A big advantage over using rope is the cable takes up much less space when rolled up for storage. A 1/8 thick cable gives you 900 lbs. of load strength. A Nylon or Polyester double braid rope would have to be at least 3/8 thick to get close to 900 lbs working load strength.

This Stainless Steel vinyl coated Braided wire set is awesome. The loops at each end are not vinyl coated however the braided wire between each loop is coated and that makes it easier to mount to a wall with screws. I would recommend putting the loops through a hook or carabiner rather than screwing them to anything because it puts a lot of strain on the wire and could break the wire which could cause lots of problems. The vinyl coating is nice for a lot of reasons such as you will most likely not cut yourself unless the wire is mistreated, it is softer of plants and surfaces and the life will most likely be longer if the coating is not in direct sunlight. I really like the versatility of this material because I can use it for all sorts of creative fun from hanging pictures from it to making cool designs on the wall with them. Creating a tight line and hanging a large sheet or blanket over it to make a shelter or fort for the kids. I'm currently using them to hold my raspberries to the fence and the coating is soft on the stems so that really helps. I would recommend this to anyone with a creative mind or wants something strong for outdoor gardening

I originally got these cables to put up some Colourtree sails in the backyard because my wife saw them somewhere else and mentioned she would not mind having them in our backyard. But then when I started the project, she could not decide on square, triangle, or any of the multiple colors. So, while she is thinking about it, I decided it would make a great cable to secure my car cover. I bought some heavy-duty anchors and placed them at the four corners of the car cover and the 12-foot-long cable was the perfect length to reach up and over the corner and back down again. The galvanized and vinyl coated finish should keep it from rusting out, and the best part was the working 900 lbs. load limit as I think that would be more than enough to keep my car cover in place. I bought some connectors that also had 990 lbs. working limit so between the two of them I should be all set. I love having the premade knots in the end that keeps me from having to connect them with the cable connectors and getting stabbed by the cut ends of the cable the other way. And the absolute best part is that they come with a no questions asked lifetime warranty, so if the break or come apart I can get a replacement.

Although this is meant to be used for sun shade sails, my husband had other plans while we're still trying to design our backyard oasis. We have a raised garden bed in the backyard and some planters in the front yard that we use for tomatoes, but struggle each season with the weight of the fruit making the plant too top heavy. Our plan is to use this as a heavy duty trellis for tomato season coming up. The loops seem to hold a lot of weight and are made well and each one is 12 ft long, so perfect for our garden beds. This would be a good way to grown some vines and shape it into a walkway too!

These arrived so late in the season that I won't be putting up sun shade sails, so I decided to try them for locking up large lawn machines that don't fit inside the shed. The loop is wide enough to hold most standard padlocks. I also rigged one up between two trees, like a clothesline, and attached a third one so it slides back and forth; this allows a small dog to run back and forth.

These are actually intended for use with sun shades but we have found so many other uses! The steel cable is coated with vinyl which I prefer to using plain steel cabling. This pack includes four twelve foot cables with looped ends. The coating is smooth and weatherproof and I find it is easier on your hands when installing. The looped ends make for easy attachment and the 12 foot length has proven to be versatile for our needs. We've used these to secure and tighten our webbed fencing in our chicken coop. Also using it across the top of our vineyard gate to extend the height to prevent the deer from jumping over. Will soon also use to secure tarps when it comes time to weatherize for the winter. And maybe we'll actually use it to secure sun shades next summer! These are handy to have on hand!

I ordered these wire ropes so I can test them as clotheslines for a few months before I decide how to mount a sun-shade sail or other shade structure in my backyard next spring. I purchased a different type of cable a few months ago. I cut that cable into 4 pieces and screwed on clamps to make loops at the ends. There is already rust starting at the cut ends and extending up the cables inside the clear covering near my clamps. These colourtree cables have factory-installed looped ends with clamps. The factory clamp and coating look very tight. I think they are going to work better than my DIY cables. If I am disappointed, I will update or replace this review.

I have found so many uses for this product. These I used to make a fence line to hold up, hedge, our bougainvillea hedge. We used garden posts, a plastic coated tall metal garden stake, with pipe clamps to hold in place. Bougainvillea get large & heavy with thorns and this fence guide will encourage upward growth as well as a guide to us for snipping horizontal branches growing into our walking path. I have also used these as wash lines with great success for over 15 years. They can hold the weight and very minimal stretch.

As described this vinyl coated wire extension are excellent alternative for holding a square, rectangular or triangle shade. This set comes with 4 wires 12’ long (actual 11’ 1/2”). The vinyl coating makes easy to handle and safe to touch compared to bare wire, the ending loops are a great value to the wire. I can think of many other applications for this type of product, use as single or multiple wires. As I show in the picture I’m using them to hold the tent to fly away with the wind but can be use as to secure a gas tank to a trailer or grill, securing objects around the house.

Reminder to self: these are unnecessary without solar sails. But, the sails are next on our list, and won’t install without wire rope to hold them aloft AND keep them anchored in our desert wind storms. Each rope, looped at both ends, is twelve foot long, galvanized wire with a vinyl coating. That makes them both rust and weather tough. They are advertised as taking 900 pounds of force… important when our hurricane winds hit the kitchen garden. Until the sails arrive, the ropes will make fine garden-art, a bit industrial and avant-garde, though still unnecessary without solar sails flying from them.
