Wire Ferrules

A ferrule is a type of fastener often used to create a loop from materials such as rope or wire. The ferrule is a tube-like fastener through which one or more strands of the material are passed through. A tool such as a pliers or other crimping device is then used to crimp the ferrule down around the material until it is tight enough to restrict movement through the ferrule.
