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: 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.
