Strong, sleek and stylish. The humble thimble has evolved into a high strength, corrosion resistant, anchor component for all rope types. DMM Thimbles are cast in top grade stainless steel and have smooth surfaces throughout which are sought out by the most discerning cordage!
bull; Compatible with wire or textile ropes with smooth outer surfaces, entrance flares and rope channels
bull; Protects ropes and terminations against abrasion and tight bend radii
bull; Open sided rope channels permit inspection of cordage
bull; Low surface friction allows textile ropes to move efficiently
bull; Enables compact and simple mechanical advantage systems
bull; Helps equalize loads on both sides of the thimble
bull; Sized to allow rotation of most carabiner securing mechanisms
bull; Corrosion resistant
Minimum breaking strength for a thimble is dependent on the wire or textile rope connected to the thimble and termination strength. As an indication of potential strength, thimbles configured with high performance synthetic fibre rope have withstood 40kN (8mm) with only minor surface deformation.
