Default Wire cable repair

Has anyone ever used on of these to repair there wire cable? I want to use the Tough Stuff Products Winch Safety Thimble™ but I'm not crazy about cable clamps to hold the wire together. I would go syn. but with mud, salt ect in MI it's going to tear it up. Plus the cable is brand new. Anyone got any thoughts on doing this?

I guess it could work, I have no faith in mechanical swedges, that looks like it could pull apart if not done right.

I would consider getting into some better cable or going with the hightensel nylon rope if you want to avoid trail accidents with your winch.

Safe-Line clamps are intended for use only on 6x19 IWRC or 7x19 wire rope regular-lay.
What size is your cable? I don't think it would be one of those.

Personally I wouldn't use one of those.....if you really want to do it right go somewhere that will press a new clamp on for ya...can't be that much.......you could just twist it and put some JB weld and duct tape on it We all know those two things hold the planet together.

I might buy a few to have on hand for trail repair, but I wouldn't use that for an off-trail repair.

Do it right or die.

That is a rope class not a size, Tim.
