The Adjust-A-Body Ferrule is used with Adjust-A-Body fittings in order to retain the fitting onto the cable and prevent it from splitting or sliding. These are designed to be used with 1/8" and 3/16" diameter 1x19 stainless steel cable that is included with your kit, however dimensions will vary depending upon which cable size you are using.
The Adjust-A-Body Ferrule sits inside of your Adjust-A-Body fitting and holds tension while the fitting is being installed. Once the fitting is securely into place, the ferrule will then remain holding the onto your Adjust-A-Body fittings on one side, and the cable on the other. Ferrules are an important part of any Adjust-A-Body kit and will come factory-swaged onto the fitting that is included in your kit.
Invisiware Radius Ferrule
The Invisiware Radius Ferrule is a concealed, swaged, non-tensioning, through-the-post-mounted fitting that is suitable for pitched or level runs with metal or wood posts. This fitting is available for 1/8” and 3/16” diameter 1x19 stainless steel cable.
The Invisiware Radius Ferrule must be used with a tensioning fitting on the opposite end of the run. It is the least expensive through-the-post fitting that we offer. This fitting has a head shaped to appear like the Invisiware Receiver from the outside of the post (like the Receiver, the Radius Ferrule is concealed within the post). For these two reasons, it is recommended to use the Invisiware Radius Ferrule on one end of your cable run and an Invisiware Receiver with stud on the opposite end whenever practical to do so. The only reason not to consider this fitting as your non-tensioning end would be if you preferred to use a swageless solution.
This fitting installs into a hole drilled through the face of the post (to accommodate the cable at minimum) and a hole through the back side of the post to accommodate the fitting. It also requires that you have at least 2” of clearance on the back side of your end post so you have enough workspace to feed the rest of the cable through the post prior to pulling the Radius Ferrule into its final position. (The cable would likely be attached to the Radius Ferrule prior to installing it through the back side of the post). We recommend using a stainless steel flat washer between the shoulder of the fitting and the mating surface of the wood post.
You can use this fitting on a pitched application with wooden posts by installing a post protector tube into the face of the post where the cable exits at an angle. The post protector tube protects the face of the post from abrasion and furrowing as the cable is tensioned. For use on pitched applications with metal posts, simply kink the cable where it exits the face of the post after initial tensioning. A kink is achieved by placing a piece of wood onto the cable where it exits the face of the post and striking it lightly with a hammer to create the kink.
The Invisiware Stud is a concealed, swaged, non-tensioning, inside-the-post-mounting fitting that is suitable for use on level or pitched runs and is available for 1/8” and 3/16" diameter 1x19 stainless steel cable.
The Invisiware® Stud can be used as a non-tensioning end in level or pitched applications. It is swaged onto one end of the cable and threaded into a drilled and tapped hole in the face of the post (1/4” wall thickness minimum). This fitting would typically be paired with an Invisiware Receiver and Stud tensioning fitting on the opposite end. This method of using an Invisiware Stud as a non-tensioning end is restricted to interior applications.
The Push-Lock Stud is attached manually with no special tools required. The cable is attached to the fitting via our Push-Lock locking wedge system. Push- and Pull-Lock fittings are made entirely of stainless steel components, most of them Type 316.Push-Lock Stud Installation Guide
