How To Use a Hand Swage Tool

Level of Difficulty hammer icon hammer icon

Learn how to use a hand swager to crimp the end of stainless wire cable balustrade fittings.

Step 1

  • Take Ferrule and slide it through your wire in one hole
  • Loop it back on itself and go back through the other Ferrule hole to create a loop knot

 

Step 2

  • Grab thimble and attach to the loop then pull the Ferrule back up on itself to secure in place
NOTE: The point of the thimble is to protect the wire from other attachments and fasteners like a saddle 

Step 3

  • Grip your Hand Swager and Cutter and put in position on the Ferrule
  • Apply pressure and squeeze to shut
  • Use the cutter in your Hand Swager if you would like to cut and neaten the ends of the wire.

  Had what I wanted and struggled to find elsewhere. The online ordering was simple and painless, even the postage cost was very reasonable. The website had very useful video tips and when looking at products I was given useful suggestions on other products such as the matching fasteners to use. Very satisfied with my post capitals purchase. Highly recommended.
