Figure 3-32.–Correct and incorrect use of wire-rope clips. WIRE-ROPE CLIPS A temporary eye splice may be put in wire by using wire-rope clips. The correct and incorrect ways of using these clips are shown in figure 3-32. The U-bolt always goes over the bitter end and the roddle goes on the standing part. Space the clips at a distance apart equal to six times the diameter of the wire. After the rope is under strain, tighten the clips again as a safety measure. The  clips  must  be  rechecked  periodically  thereafter  and retightened  as  needed.  Pay  particular  attention  to  the wire at the clip farthest from the eye because vibration and whipping are dampened here and fatigue breaks are likely to occur. To obtain maximum strength in the temporary eye splice, you must use the correct size and number of wire clips. The size is stamped on the roddle between the two holes. The minimum number of clips to use for various sizes of wire rope is shown in table 3-4. The improved type of wire rope clip is shown in figure 3-33. Both halves are identical and provide a bearing surface for both parts of the rope. Thus, it cannot be put on wrong and it does not distort the wire. It also allows a full swing with a wrench. Personnel handling wire rope must always wear gloves. Even new wire occasionally has a fishhook that, if allowed to slide through the unprotected hand, can inflict a painful hand injury.
