Esmet fitting

Has anybody use the following fitting in standing rigging of a boat?
Esmet, Manufacturer of Tufloc High Security Products, Electroline Wire Rope Terminations and Tufloc High Security Locks
I understand they are for industrial usage but according to the spec the fittings are at least 1.3 times stronger than the corresponding steel rope.They use stainless steel. I asked them which alloy but did get the answer yet. I know they are often used as terminals for lifelines.
