The hand-crimp Lock T for 3/16″ cable provides a clean, fixed end for a cable railing run with hollow, metal posts. 3/16″ cable is hand-crimped into the Lock T and is then inserted into a hollow, metal post. The fitting drops into place, forming a “T” inside the post and holding the cable firmly in place. The Lock T’s are not tensioners as they must be anchored before the other end of your cable run is tensioned. The Lock T’s are paired with a tensioner such as a Threaded Terminal or Turnbuckle. The ends are good for indoor or outdoor applications. They are T316 “marine grade” stainless steel.
Overall Length of Lock T = 1-1/2″
Drill hole size = 3/8″
