Cable Swivels

Three types of swivels are available from Fortune Rope: hot dip galvanized drop forged eye and eye, hot dip galvanized drop forged jaw and eye, and hot dip galvanized drop forged ring and eye. All swivels are constructed of forged carbon steel. Swivels are primarily used to prevent twisting — commonly referred to as "over-twist" — that causes stress in lines or cables.

All Fortune Rope hot dip galvanized drop forged swivels are available in sizes from 1/4" to 1-1/2", with working load limits (WLL) from 850 to 45,200 pounds.
