Flex Copper Cables — Shoo-In Lugs and Shoo-Pin Adapters
Installing proper connections on flexible, high-strand cables, that are reliable, can be a major challenge — and we have the adapters to solve this challenge properly and quickly. We have PT-FX Shoo-In flex cable lugs designed for connecting with a wide variety of flexible cables of various styles and classes.

To land a flex cable into a set-screw type lug, choose our PT-FX Shoo-Pin all-copper compression adapters. They are perfect for use on all flex cable installations, such as locomotives, trucks, marine applications, robotic machinery, wind power systems, and more. Our unique flared barrel opening makes it easy to install all those fine strands that blossom when cut, while creating a safe stable connection. Shoo-Pin adapters are fabricated of wrought copper with a pin of Class B stranded copper. Insulating covers are included.

Copper Class B — ReduceR Adapters
Do you need to step down copper Class B cables where oversized cable was run to decrease voltage drop on long runs? Greaves PT-R ReduceR adapters come in numerous barrel sizes and pin sizes, for installation with standard U-type dies, to ensure you have options to fit every scenario. Our ReduceR step-down adapters offer a narrow barrel profile to allow fitting where wires are close together on C/B ports or mechanical set-screw type connectors. ReduceR adapters are fabricated of wrought copper with a pin of Class B stranded copper. Insulating covers are included.

Aluminum Cable — Dual-Rated Splicers and Reducers
Splicing aluminum and copper wires together can be tricky unless you have Greaves dual-rated aluminum cable splicers. You can easily transition from aluminum to an equal or smaller copper wire, or transition to a copper flex cable. Splicing aluminum-to-aluminum wire is also accommodated.
All of our AC-R Aluminum compression splicers are pre-filled with oxide-inhibitor to prevent oxidation of the aluminum surfaces, and capped to keep the barrel clean.
