For Metal Posts
The Inviware Swaging Stud is swaged onto the end of the cable and used with the Invisiware Receiver. The threaded surface is coated with a baked-on molybdenum-based dry film lubricant, to prevent the threads from galling when tensioned.
For Wood Posts
The Invisiware® Receiver with Invisiware® Stud combination is a concealed, swaged, tensioning, through-the-post-mounted fitting that is suitable for level or pitched runs, and is available for wood applications for 1/8” and 3/16” diameter 1×19 stainless steel cable. The Invisiware® Receiver with stud can be used with any other fitting on the opposite end of the run. This fitting is placed and concealed within a pre-drilled hole in the wood end post (a minimum of 3” of clearance must exist on the back side of the post to allow installation of the Receiver). We recommend placing a stainless steel flat washer between the fitting shoulder and the mating surface of the wood post (washer sold separately, see bottom of page). The stud is swaged onto one end of the cable and is inserted and threaded into the Receiver installed in the end post. Tension is created by rotating the Receiver (with a hex wrench inserted into its broached end) and drawing the stud into the Receiver.
This fitting can also be used in pitched applications using the same horizontally drilled method for 4×4 wood posts. The same method works for larger posts by installing a post protector tube on the cable exit-to-pitch side of your wood end post (post protector tube sold separately, see below). This fitting is commonly paired with a Pull-Lock® on the opposite end of the run. The Receiver/Pull-Lock® combination is a mainstay of our popular 1/8” and 3/16” kit offerings
