This barrel clamp is perfect for connecting two cables, making a loop in the end of a cable, or preventing a cable from pulling through a small hole. Some mechanical fire systems (such as Lifeline and SPA) use a similar clamp to secure the cable to the firing head handles.
The barrel measures 5/16" (8mm) OD x 0.675" (17.5mm) long without the clamp screw. A 5/32" hole through the center of the barrel accepts up to two 1/16" diameter cables, or a single #8 stud (our standard #10 stud is just a little too big). A single 10-32 clamp screw is provided. The barrel is only threaded from one end, but some work with a tap would allow you to add a second clamp screw from the other end.
Note: Clamping directly on a single 1/16" diameter cable will require slight modification to the barrel. Filing down the threaded end of the barrel will provide a tighter fit by allowing the clamp screw to fit farther down in the barrel.
