    different ways to stop pulley slipping

    hi guys,

    was just researching the different ways people have gone about stopping the line slipping on pulleys in their setup, we are just completing our yoke setup (dual control)....i was thinking of fishing weights crimped on the line above the pulley but does anyone else have any suggestions

    thanks in advance

    Re: different ways to stop pulley slipping

    G'day James,
    This is how I lock wires to pulleys using the brass ring and screw from a 'blue point' electrical connector. I used 2mm stainless steel wire rope to link my dual yokes and I put the same clamps on the yoke heads that I sell!




    Cheers Gwyn
