Lifeline Threaded Interlocking Gate Eye
Hand-Crimp Fitting for 3/16" Wire - Type 316 Stainless Steel
An interlocking gate eye is used at the opposite end of the gate hook as a "hinge" for the gate.
Hand Crimp fittings allow one to install lifelines with Johnson hand-crimp tool #53-210, SKU 705794. This means fabrication may be done directly on the boat, saving time and eliminating measurement error. Hand Crimp fittings, when installed properly, bring safety and satisfaction to the experienced do-it-yourselfer.
Note: A properly installed hand-crimp fitting will hold 65-70% of the breaking strength of 7x7 cable. While this has proven adequate for lifelines, do not use these fittings for standing rigging or other high-load applications.
