If the exact length of the final wire is unknown a good solution is only to swage one end and screw a swageless terminal onto the
wire for final attachment on site at the other end.
Alternatively, the WDS range of Small fittings can be crimped onto the wires using a hand tool, however, due to reduced amount
of material in the small fittings, only a 50% break load of the wire can be obtained by this method.
