A Safe "No-Slip-Grip" for your thru-bulkhead cables. This unit prevents your throttle mixture, choke or any push-pull cable from slipping at the firewall/ bulkhead location. Machined from lightweight aluminum, and blue anodized. Installation is simple with a drill and wrench. Once installed, the cable is threaded and the end nut is snugged down on the cable casing for positive encapsulation. Designed specifically for the aircraft industry, these fittings can be installed on virtually any application that requires a solid hold on any cable assembly with a rigid outer case. Thousands of applications: auto, boat, race car, motorhome. Used with 1/4" thru 7/32" diameter cable.
CABLE SAFE NO SLIP GRIP
These really work great, look good too.
This is a great addition to the firewall penetration to ensure a stable and safe connection for the cable. It is easy to install and is extremely lite. I recommend this for any cable pass through on the firewall!
Easy and efficient.
Perfect for securing controls for cabin heat (A-740) and carb heat (A-730). Those cables are 3/16, so I also ordered the adapter housing, 05-16251.
This cable safe fitting is well made and works as described. Sure took a long time to get it to me. Three + weeks?

05-16250 can be used with cable housing O.D. of 1/4" thru 7/32". If the housing O.D. is 3/16", spacer part number 05-16251 will be required to grip the housing.
The A930 or any cable with swaged threaded ends can not be used with the 05-16250 cable safe. Only cables with 1/4" O.D. outer housing, and a solid wire end can be used. A930, and other swaged threaded ends, will need to use part number 05-16252, which has two halves. The 05-16250 is a one piece unit and swaged ends will not allow it to be installed.
7/32 or 1/4" cable housing.
You will need to drill a 9/16" hole.
This will have a max panel thickness of .375".
