Oakland, Calif.-based Feeney Inc., makers of the CableRail brand of architectural cable assemblies, introduced its new line of CableRail swageless Quick-Connect cable hardware. Feeney has taken the patented automatic-locking-jaw design of its original Quick-Connect fitting and applied it to an entire line of cable-end fittings.
“With the expansion of the Quick-Connect line we’ve provided cable installers more flexibility in the field," said Andrew Toimil, VP operations at Feeney. "Not only are there more fitting styles to accommodate virtually any railing installation condition or design need, but the functional simplicity of the fittings also saves a lot of time during installation."
Quick-Connect fittings attach to the cable by hand in the field without special tools. Special spring-loaded one-way jaws allow the end of the cable to easily slide into the fitting and then automatically grab and lock on when the cable is pulled back, according to the company.
