"KING" Safety Cables
When hose, couplings or clamps fail, or there is an accidental separation of the assembly, King Safety Cables minimize
damage to equipment and injuries to operators. KING SAFETY CABLE reaches across the hose fittings to provide standby
safety for hose. Spring-loaded loops in the cable ends open easily to pass over the couplings for a firm grip on the hose.
Thoroughly tested with years of service. A positive safeguard for air hose connections - helps you meet today's safety standards.
KING SAFETY CABLE must be installed in the extended position (no slack).

Features:
Hose-to-hose or hose-to-rigid outlet Highly resistant to rust and corrosion
King Cable is the low cost answer to eliminate No tools needed - Easy to install and remove
injuries caused by broken air hose connections

(e) Before use, pneumatic tools shall be secured to the extension hose or whip by some positive means to prevent the tool from
becoming accidentally disconnected from the whip.

Standards - 29 CFR, 1926.302 (partial):
(b)(1) Pneumatic power tools shall be secured to the hose or whip by some positive means to prevent the tool from becoming
accidentally disconnected.

Standards - 29 CFR, 1926.603 (partial):
(a)(9) Steam hose leading to a steam hammer or jet pipe shall be securely attached to the hammer with an adequate length of at
least 1/4-inch diameter chain or cable to prevent whipping in the event the joint at the hammer is broken. Air hammer hoses shall be

Crimped "Dix-Lock" Recommendation Guide
The chart at the right is only a guide. It will not apply to every coupling situation. In some instances alternative dies and
crimping dimensions must be employed to ensure safety. Experience has shown that variances in the construction of
similar hoses and couplings may cause some assemblies to react differently when crimped. It is not uncommon to find
hose with an outer diameter that fluctuates from one end to the other or from production lot to production lot. These
inconsistencies coupled with the inherent differences between textile or wire braid, hard or soft wall, the presence or
absence of an internal spiral wire and the differences in hose coverings make it difficult to establish hard and fast rules.
Therefore, its imperative that hose dimensions are accurately measured, assemblies are tested, and documentation is
maintained.

The Importance of "Whip Hose"
The constant vibration created by air tools, like air drills and pavement breakers, is destructive to air hose couplings,
especially the quick-acting type. To provide a safer working enviroment, connect one end of a 3' to 10' length of air
hose to the tool using Dixons "No. 3500" Steel Nipple. This nipple is designed to specifically handle vibration
applications. Connect the other end of hose to the air supply using the standard quick-acting coupling. The "Whip
Hose" should remain permanently connected to the tool.

King Safety Cable Installation Procedures
A. For Hose to Tool Installation (WSR1, WSR2, WSR3, WSR4)
1. Loosen cinch on end of cable without spring.
2. Loop cable over tool or connection. The connection must be shaped so that the cable will not slip off if a failure
occurs. The connection or tool is the anchor for the cable.
3. Open the cable loop on the spring end and slide it over the hose end.
4. Attach hose to tool or connection.
5. Remove slack from cable by loosening spring on hose and sliding cable as far away as possible from tool or
connections.

B. For Hose to Hose Installation (WB1, WA2, WB3, WA4)
1. Open the cable loop on one end and slide it over the coupling of one hose.
2. Open the cable loop on the connecting end and slide it over the coupling on the other hose.
3. Couple the hoses together.
4. Remove slack by sliding both cables equally apart.
