SAFETY CABLES FOR HOSE


Use "King" Safety Cables to help prevent accidents or injury resulting from hose or coupling failure.

These strong steel cables prevent hose whip in case of accidental separation of coupling or clamp device. The King Cable reaches across the hose fittings to provide standby safety for hose. Spring-loaded loops in the cable ends open easily to pass over the couplings for a firm grip on the hose. These cables are thoroughly tested with years of service. They are a positive safeguard for air hose connections - they help you meet today's safety standards.
The King Cable must be installed in the extended position (no slack).
