For use with 1/16 in. stainless steel rudder cable, as found in the Confluence Rudder Cable Kit and for use with Stainless Steel Thimbles. Common on Necky, Old Town, Ocean Kayak, Perception, Dagger and Wilderness Systems kayaks. Use like a Nicopress sleeve. How to: Crimp the swage by squeezing it very tightly with a Rudder Cable Crimper Cutter Tool or Vice Grips. You may need to squeeze it a couple times. Carefully cut off the waste end of the cable close to the swage. If you placed a second swage on the cable it can be slipped over the frayed end and squeezed in place, covering the sharp wires, and adding extra security. Alternatively: Wind some duct tape over the frayed end if necessary.
