For example 1/8" wire rope with 1 sleeve and 1 crimp Or cables crimped " sideways" I refused to use them when it was provided. Was I too overcautious?? Does anybody have an opinion ? Could it may have been used.? The object to be hanged -It was like well within breaking strength ( weight was ~ 300lbs. ) My main concern was the improper crimping. Using thimbles or no make a difference??
