fixed jaw

The Fixed Jaw is an exposed, swaged, non-tensioning, face-of-the-post-mounted fitting that is suitable for use on level or pitched runs and is available for 1/8”, 3/16”, 1/4”, 5/16”, and 3/8” diameter 1×19 stainless steel cable.

The Fixed Jaw must be used with a tensioning fitting on the opposite end of the run. This fitting attaches to the wood end post by installing a Lag Eye into a pre-drilled hole in the end post and attaching the Fixed Jaw to the lag eye with a button head screw. The cable is retained within the Fixed Jaw by a ferrule swaged onto the end of the cable.

While this fitting can be used on pitched or level runs, it is most appropriate for pitched runs because the Fixed Jaw pivots at the lag eye. The pre-drilled hole for the lag eye is drilled level, making installation easy.

Use of this fitting requires an appropriately sized ferrule that is swaged onto the cable, which must also be purchased separately. This fitting was designed to be compatible in appearance to the Adjust-A-Jaw® tensioning fitting.
