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.
Being a left hand thread, it is designed to be used inconjunction with the right hand thread version SSW056-6.
Adjust the nut 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.
