Wire rope products are utilized in vastly diverse industries and
environments. Our job at Lexco Cable is to guide our customers'
decisions in selecting the optimal combination of wire rope products
for their unique applications.
The Fixed Jaw is designed similar in appearance to the Adjust-A-Jaw® tensioner, while being less expensive than an Adjust-A-Jaw. The Fixed Jaw does not allow for any adjustment. The Fixed Jaw should be used on one end, and an Adjust-A-Jaw on the other end of a cable. This fitting is especially suited to uses on stair pitches, as it will automatically assume the correct pitch of the stair when the cable is tensioned. The Fixed Jaw is the shortest and most streamlined clevis fitting that is available for its stated cable size. While it is ideally suited for stair pitches, it also is a very attractive fitting to use if you want the ”hightech” look of exposed stainless steel hardware on level runs as well as on stair pitches. The Fixed Jaw is held onto the cable by our swaging ferrule. The swaging ferrule fits into the counterbore of the Fixed Jaw after the swaging ferrule is attached.
