Wedge Rope Socket


To connect slickline to the tool string, using the brace tool rope socket.


Thread line through top of rope socket and sleeve, lay line in groove of wedge and form around radius at bottom of wedge. (care should be taken to form the line around the wedge and not bend or kink the line as this may create a weak spot in line and lead to failure)

Once the slickline is formed around the wedge, the sleeve should be slid down over the wire and wedge to hold it in place, the tail of the wire should be trimmed so as not to stick up past top of wedge.
