Nicopress sleeves are used with aircraft cable, wire rope, and fiber rope. NICOPRESS OVAL SLEEVES are used to eye-splice, and NICOPRESS STOP SLEEVES are used to terminate cable and rope.

For convenient and proper compression of Nicopress Sleeves both in the field and in the shop, many types of Nicopress Tools are available.

They include:

Bench Tool (Manual Hydraulic Tools)
Hand Tools (Power Hydraulic Tools)


Detailed instruction sheets showing proper tool operation and adjustment, plus gauges for checking sleeve compression are packaged with each tool.

We have determined through pulling testing that copper and plated copper Nicopress Oval Sleeves will hold military specifications grade aircraft control cable in tension until breaks, when the cable is made to military specifications:MIL-W-83420, dated 9-7-93 for cable constructions 3 x 7, 7 x 7, 7 x 19, and MIL-W-1511A dated 2-20-64 and MIL-W-5424B dated 1-10-72 for cable constructions 6 x 19.

However, other types and grades of cable exist and may be used with Nicopress Sleeves. In order to establish the exact holding power of a Nicopress sleeve when used with other types of cable, we recommend pull testing prior to use. This step insures the proper selection materials, the correct pressing procedure, and adequate margin of safety for the intended use.

Nicopress sleeves are available in other materials such as aluminum and stainless steel.
