Aircraft cable is wire rope that consists of 7 or 19 individual hot dipped galvanized steel wires that are laid in a spiral around a center or “king” wire to form a strand. The strands are then twisted together to form a cable. If a larger number of thinner wires are used to make a strand, such as 19 in a 7 x 19 cable, the finished cable is more flexible, stronger and more expensive. Typical uses include garage door cables, tie downs, dog runs, hanging signs and guy wires for antennas and flagpoles.
Warning: Do not use for overhead lifting and never exceed the working load limit.
