Suncore Life Fittings

Just wondering if anyone has used these? I am thinking of either using quick attach or the hand swage which are cheaper. I'm not sure hand swaging is suitable for lifelines though.

How do they compare to Noresmen?

Re: Suncore Life Fittings

I just want to bump this. If no one has anything to say about suncore in particular can someone comment on hand Swaging lifelines. Is this considered safe?

Re: Suncore Life Fittings

Just redid a neighbors lifelines with all suncor.... As one should not rely on lifelines as safety lines (read jacklines) I have always contended hand swaged terminations are strong enough (65-70% of 7x7 wire) . Best to use "bolt cutter" type swage tool over "wrench' type however.

Best price I found on suncor fittings was Here

Re: Suncore Life Fittings

I have the Suncor mechanical lifeline fittings and they work very well. Re-usable obviously unlike swaged fittings.
