HEAVY DUTY HAWSER THIMBLE
The cast-steel Heavy Duty Hawser Thimble is designed for use with wire rope or high-performance synthetic fiber ropes such as AmSteel®-Blue, Force-8, and DPX™-75.The galvanized thimble provides smooth and even grooves, maximum
strength in critical areas, and the proper bending radius for the rope. When used with synthetic ropes, the thimble eye should be whipped at approximately 2, 4, 8, and 10 o’clock on the thimble circumference to secure it to the rope when
not in service.
