How do I fasten the cable to it ?
The 3.2mm wire cable goes into the open end of the fitting. Use an hydraulic swager to secure the cable. Do NOT use a hand swager or pliers, as the pressure required to press the metal flat is far greater than can be applied by hand.
Rotate the centre of the fixing to tension the cable (a special spanner can be purchased from our shop to aid the process, but is not 100% necessary).
Can it be used for exterior application ?
As it is 316 grade Stainless Steel it is more than suitable to be used inside or outside.
