The Rigguy Wire Stops offer a less intrusive, less bulky, and less expensive method for securing cable in trees! The internal taper of Rigguy's wire stop fits over the middle strand of 7-strand EHS cable with the six remaining strands surrounding it. The more pressure that is applied, the deeper into the block the strand and taper are pulled. It can be used in more applications because it is secured on the outside of the limb or trunk. It makes a more finished, less cluttered, installation because of its small size and simplicity.
Compare the 2 pieces of equipment needed to complete an end using the Wire Stop to the 5 parts needed for and using traditional tree cabling tools. You can easily carry all enough Wire Stops to complete a job in a small bag on your saddle.

The internal taper of Rigguy's wire stop fits over the middle strand of 7-strand EHS cable with the six remaining strands surrounding it. The more pressure that is applied, the deeper into the block the strand and taper are pulled. The block is made of 6061 AL and taper is made of 416 SS for strength of application and corrosion resistance. Although the wire stop is only 1 1/4 inches long, it holds close to 100 percent of the breaking strength of the strand itself, which is more than 15,000 pounds (if using 3/8-inch EHS strand). The wire stop eliminates the need for the J, lag, eye, hooks, thimbles, through bolts, pre-formed wraps, wire clips, or other terminal hardware. It can be used in more applications because it is secured on the outside of the limb or trunk. It makes a more finished, less cluttered, installation because of its small size and simplicity.

The same part as the WIRE STOP listed above except that is fits the smaller strands.
(Conforms to ANSI A300 Standards) For all wire sizes. (1/4” to 3/8”)
The wire stop hub is the middle of a hub and spoke system for joining three trunks or leaders together. It's less damaging than triangulation because it only requires three holes instead of six. Also it requires less than half the parts (13) required in a traditional system installation (31).
Requires tapers from the Wire Stop.
This Rigguy CUT hub functions as the Wire Stop Hub above, but has flats to make it easier to install the Wire Stops. Use the Rigguy CUT hub at center of a three way (hub and spoke) cabling system. For use with 1/4” to 3/8” EHS cable.
This Rigguy stainless steel hub allows for the connection of four leads or trunks in one central unit. For use with 1/4” to 3/8” EHS cable.
Individual wire stop tapers for use with the various Rigguy hubs, or to replace lost tapers.
The Finishing Cap is not a necessary component of the Wire Stop. It does, however give a finished appearance and protection from exposed wire ends. The cap is made of UV protected vinyl.
Use this machined aluminum washer to give a flat seat for the Rigguy wire stop on angled limbs. The Rigguy beveled washer is cut at a 35% angle.
Extra High Strength tree cable is suitable for tree cabling jobs requiring high breaking strengths. EHS cable is not spliceable. Extra High Strength tree cable is available in three diameters.
• 1/4” EHS Cable = 6,650 lb tensile strength
• 5/16” EHS Cable = 11,200 lb tensile strength
• 3/8” EHS Cable = 15,400 lb tensile strength
WesSpur stocks a selection of extra-long auger bits so that you can make a clean hole without having to drill from both sides.
The strand dispenser holds your spool of cable together and prevents it from snarling. Single use only.
This grip is designed for a light, compact grip when pulling cable. Gripping pressure of the knurled jaw is applied to 1/4” cable area. Max load of 5,000 lb. Accepts cable diameters from 1/8” to 1/2”.
The Chicago Grip is a cable grip for use on EHS cable. When used as a pull point to tension a cable, the Chicago grip will not crimp or bend the line like traditional cable grips because it's jaws are flat instead of curved.
These standards have been developed by industry professionals to reflect accepted methods of installing and maintaining tree support systems. It is recommended that anyone installing tree cabling systems read the ANSI A300 support standard first.
