Type I, II and III clamps, bolted. MS16842 type I, FF-C-450/1, type II, and MS5186, type III, wire rope clamps are intended for use on wire rope eye-loop connections or complete-loop, end-to-end connections where socketing or splicing is not feasible when a nonpermanent or temporary joint is required. The clamps also may be used in an end-to-end connection to make a continuous length wire rope, but in emergency cases only.
Single-saddle clamps. Single-saddle wire rope clamps MS16842, type I, may be used interchangeably with double-saddle wire rope clamps FF-C-450/1, type II and MS5186, type III, class 1, on wire ropes of the same diameter but should not be used interchangeably with MS51868 type III, class 2 clamps. MS16842 single-saddle wire rope clamps should be placed on eye-loop connections with their U-bolts on the dead or short end of the rope.
Positioning of components. Wire rope clamps should be placed on the wire rope connection with the corrugations in their saddles coinciding with the lay of the wire rope. The nuts on the clamps should be retightened immediately after the initial loading, and at frequent intervals of time thereafter. For the recommended number of type I, class 1 clamps, see MS16842, for type III, class 1 or class 2 clamps, see MS51868.
MS16843 type IV clamps, threaded. Type IV wire rope clamps consist of a split, taper thread body and mating hexagonal nut and are intended for use on wire rope eye-loops.View Less
