Blue Line Thimble
The Blue Line Thimble is compatible with Samson’s high-performance, high-modulus synthetic fiber rope products such as AmSteel®-Blue, Force-8, and DPX™-75. The tubular gusseted design creates a high-strength thimble that protects the rope and maintains the proper bending radius when connected to mating hardware.
Bronze Rope Thimbles are made from a high strength, noncorrosive, nonsparking nickle-aluminum bronze alloy. This rope thimble was developed primarily for use with nylon, manila, polypropylene, and Polyvinyl chloride ropes. Four rings or “keepers” secure the rope from jumping out of the thimble. Seventeen sizes are available in rope-diameters from 3/8" to 4-3/4".
Galvanized HD Wire Thimble
The Wire Thimble protects against wear and deformation of the rope eye. Designed with the proper bending radius to maintain rope strength and provide longer service life. This thimble meets the performance requirements of Federal Specifications FF-T-276b Type III (except for those provisions required of the contractor.)
Heavy Duty Hawser Thimble
The cast-steel Heavy Duty Hawser Thimble is designed for use with wire rope or high-performance synthetic fiber ropes such as AmSteel®-Blue, Force-8, and DPX™-75.The galvanized thimble provides smooth and even grooves, maximum strength in critical areas, and the proper bending radius for the rope. When used with synthetic ropes, the thimble eye should be lashed at approximately 2, 4, 8, and 10 o’clock on the thimble circumference to secure it to the rope when not in service.
