Constructed of 1/8″ and/or 3/16″ stainless steel aircraft cable incorporating a stainless steel swivel to minimize the effect of unraveling due to the rotation of the truck assembly. The lower cable section has a copper cable stop attached to one end for installation into a stainless steel winch. This cable stop can easily be removed if the winch is an “M”-Type winch, which does not require a cable stop. The upper cable section is supplied with a stainless steel thimble, 2 copper crimps, and two ball cable stops, however, because this section must be threaded through the truck assembly, these parts are not attached to the cable before shipment and must be attached in the field. These standard cable assemblies are designed for flagpoles with a winch installed at 5′ above grade.
