Crosby Wedge Sockets

Crosby Wedge Sockets

CROSBY® US-422T Utility Wedge Sockets

Basket is cast steel and individually magnetic particle inspected.
Wedge socket terminations have an efficiency rating of 80% based on the catalogue strength of XXIP wire rope.
Wedges are color coded for easy identification.
Blue – largest wire line size for socket.
Black – mid size wire line for socket.
11mm on US4
14mm on US5
Orange – smallest wire line size for socket.

Cast into each wedge is the model number of the socket and the wire line size for which the wedge is to be used.
Cast into each socket is the name “McKissick”, “Crosby” or “CG”, its model number and its wire line range.
By simply changing out the wedge, each socket can be utilized for various wire line sizes (Ensure correct wedge is used for wire rope size).
Load pin is forged and headed on one end.
US-422T wedge sockets contain a hammer pad (lip) to assist in proper securement of termination.
Crosby products meet or exceed all requirements of ASME B30.26 including identification, ductility, design factor, proof load and temperature requirements. Importantly, these sockets meet other critical performance requirements including fatigue life, impact properties and material traceability, not addressed by ASME B30.26.
UWO-422T Wedges are to be used only with the US-422 Wedge Socket Assemblies.

CROSBY® S-421T Utility Wedge Sockets

Wedge socket terminations have an efficiency rating of 80% based on the catalogue strength of XXIP wire rope.
Crosby products meet or exceed all requirements of ASME B30.26 including identification, ductility, design factor, proof load and temperature requirements. Importantly, these products meet other critical performance requirements including fatigue life, impact properties and material traceability, not addressed by ASME B30.26.
Basket is cast steel and individually magnetic particle inspected.
Pin diameter and jaw opening allows wedge and socket to be used in conjunction with open swage and spelter sockets.
Secures the tail or “dead end” of the wire rope to the wedge, thus eliminates loss or “Punch out” of the wedge.
Eliminates the need for an extra piece of rope, and is easily installed.
The TERMINATOR™ wedge eliminates the potential breaking off of the tail due to fatigue.
The tail, which is secured by the base of the clip and wedge, is left undeformed and available for reuse.
Incorporates Crosby’s patented QUIC-CHECK® “Go” and “No-Go” feature cast into the wedge. The proper size rope is determined when the following criteria are met:
Utilizes standard Crosby Red-U-Bolt® wire rope clip.Standard S-421 wedge socket can be retrofitted with the new style TERMINATOR™ wedge.

The wire rope should pass thru the “GO” hole in the wedge.
The wire rope should NOT pass thru the “No-Go” hole in the wedge.

Available with Bolt, Nut, and Cotter Pin.
U.S. Patent 5,553,360, Canada Patent 2,217,004 and foreign equivalents.
