A:  They say this is for light duty applications with no overhead lifting. Not sure what they mean by light duty though.

A:  There is no specification for the holding power for the ferrule and stop. If holding power is a concern Store SKU 140252 is a steel clamp set with bolts that can be tighten as needed, as opposed to swaging aluminum ferrules onto wire rope. This would be a stronger alternative.

    A:  If I remember correctly it’s about 300 lbs......but they do have a warning not for overhead use.

    A:  You can use a hammer on a steal surface, however I used a crimper......get one with a 24” handle to tighten correctly. May need to shop another retailer for one.....the 18” one that HD sells is not powerful enough to collapse these correcrly.

    A:  To crimp the cable, you would need to use a Swaging Tool.

      A:  You can just flatten it out with a hammer

        A:  You need a "swaging tool" like this: http://www.homedepot.com/p/Everbilt-18-in-Swaging-Tool-43834/205887557?MERCH=REC-_-rv_gm_pip_rr-_-205887743-_-205887557-_-N

          A:  I have a Crown Bolt 18" swaging tool and it is essential for correct crimping. It fits various sizes of wire rope. I would only use that as I use the ferrules on the wire rope that holds up the mast on my 21" sailboat. I bought this tool at the Home Depot

          A:  You really should use a swaging tool - Home Depot carries one that will work for this ferrule.

            I picked these up to repair the eye loop where the shackle attaches to the winch cable on my trailer. The description says it is rated for light duty so even though a 3/16 wire rope is rated for about 4,000 pounds you need to bear that in mind. And no overhead lifting. You get two ferrules and two stops, so this could be used to join two cables as well. You really should use a swaging tool with these, as proper swaged these will have a lot more holding power. Home depot carries the tool and they are not very expensive.

            Wire rope is easily cut with an angle grinder and a 40 grit metal cut off wheel. Then wire rope can be made into lengths or extended to hold up or form barriers. This ferrule is used with 3/16" wire rope. You can form an eye loop in the end by adding a thimble. You can also connect 2 lengths wire rope using a ferrule. A swaging tool is essential to compress the ferrule correctly and 2 people are needed to keep it in position. The stop is used to prevent the end from moving. I use these aluminum ferrules to hold up the stainless steel wire rope that holds up the mast on my sailboat. The wire rope does not last in the salt air and at the first sign of one strand breaking I replace the entire wire rope. I do not need the wire rope breaking under stress while under sail. The ferrules out last the wire rope.

            Ferrules fit perfectly on the plastic coated 3/16 wire sold by the foot. Please note you need a tool to secure these on the wire. A pair of pliers won’t do the job!
              It worked well for my cable drum setup. I used two of them to double up just in case one slipped through cable.
                  Used these on 3/16" steel cable and after applying 4 crimps to each ferrule, the cable still pulled out. The inner holes are simply too oversized.
