Guide Rope Sockets

Reliance Barker Davies’ guide rope sockets are designed in accordance with NCB Spec. 465:1965 and are machined from a single piece of heat treated steel. All guide rope sockets have a minimum static factor of safety of 10:1 and are all proof-load tested to 2.5 times their safe working load.

We recommend the use of Wirelock® cold socketing compound with our sockets as it has demonstrated excellent dependability and fatigue performance.
