Thimble eye

Thimble Eye® bolts are forged in two styles, straight and bent at a 45° angle. The broad radius of the eye provides an excellent attachment point to deadend or guy messenger wire, guy strand or formed wire grips. Thimble Eye® bolts eliminate the need for thimbles, shackles, links and guy hooks.

Improved corrosion resistant options are available!

Better: TDG coated items
Best: TransArmour coated items
