Compression Sleeves

Compression sleeves are one of the most traditional ways to terminate a cable assembly. All of our sleeves are designed around the MS51844 specification. When properly installed, either by machine press or with a hand tool, the resulting loop will achieve the full breaking strength of the cable. We also sell compression sleeves that can be certified tot he MS51844 specification.
