The efficiency rating of a properly prepared termination for clips sizes 3/16" through 7/8" is 80% when torqued to the required ft. lbs. For 1" through 1-1/2" 90% when torqued to the required ft. lbs. This rating is based on the breaking strength of the wire rope or cable.

Apply first load to test the assembly. This load should be of equal or greater weight than loads expected while in use. Then check and retighten nuts to recommended torque.
