Sta Lok Rigging Hardware

STA-LOK® stainless steel rigging hardware will be featured by rigging specialists Mack Sails (booth 1020), Sailing Services (booth 1027), Sparman (booth 921) and US Spars (booth 1000) at Strictly Sail Miami, Miamarina at Bayside, February 13-17.

Precision engineered for reliability and performance, STA-LOK hardware is the choice of rigging professionals worldwide. The company recently introduced a range of spreader end tip cups designed specifically for wire rope 12mm – 19mm. The new, easy to install stainless steel cups prevent thread galling. Standard diagonal angles are 75°/80°, but the cups can be custom finished to meet client specifications.
The STA-LOK range also includes self-fit terminals, swage terminals, chrome bronze turnbuckles and stemball self-fit terminals.

STA-LOK self-fit terminals are the easiest and most efficient way to terminate 1 x 19, 7 x 7, 7 x 19 and Dyform wire ropes. Manufactured from rustproof, high strength 316 stainless steel, 100% stronger than the wire. Simple to install with basic hand tools. Available in imperial and metric wire sizes from 1/8” (3mm) to1” (26mm) for right and left hand lay wire.

STA-LOK swage terminals are available in a wide range of designs and can be used with all types of swaging machines. Manufactured to US military spec from rustproof 316 stainless steel grade 1.4401 and machined to close tolerances to ensure accurate termination. Available in imperial and metric wire sizes from 1/8” (3mm) to 1” (26mm).

STA-LOK chrome bronze turnbuckles, forged from high strength bronze, are 100% stronger than the wire rope. High polished chrome plate finish. Available in imperial and metric wire sizes from 1/8” (3mm) to 1” (26mm).

STA-LOK stemball self-fit terminals for terminating yacht shrouds. Using standard stemball cups (ordered separately), the head size of the reusable stemball self-fit terminal can be increased to fit any mast and spreader attachment. It can be hand fitted instead of machine swaged and easily installed with hand tools. No pre-measurement of shroud lengths is required.
