The most commonly used end terminations for structural strand and wire rope assemblies are open-type sockets, closed-type sockets, bridge sockets and anchor sockets.

New zinc- or resin-attached sockets will develop the full rated strength of strand or rope for which they are designed, when subjected to a straight pull static load.

Socket dimensional tolerances are consistent with commercial tolerances established by the forging and steel casting industries. Closer tolerances can be met if specified.
