BALL-JOINT™ Articulation Adapter
BALL-JOINT Tow Point Adapter Provides Articulation at the Cable Termination
This nonrotating adapter reduces or eliminates bending at the cable attachment point. It extends the working life of your cable system and lowers the expense of repair and downtime.
Its unique design makes installation on cables fast and easy. After assembly, the ball is restricted from rotation relative to the housing but will articulate omnidirectionally up to 30 degrees off axis. Its compact design makes it ideal for towed or suspended instrumentation platforms and remotely operated vehicles.
Together, these products will provide full strength terminations with maximum survivability in marine environments.

Features and Benefits
- Unique design makes installation on cables fast and easy. After assembly, the ball is restricted from rotation relative to the housing, but will articulate omni-directionally up to 30 degrees off axis.
- Designed for harsh undersea environments, the BALL-JOINT Tow Point Adaptor is fabricated of corrosion resistant metals such as Nitronic® 50, INCONEL® 625, aluminum nickel bronze, titanium and 316 stainless steel for compatibility with your cable system and mission.
- BALL-JOINT Tow Point Adaptors are designed for use with PMI’s EVERGRIP, DYNA-GRIP, and FARMOR mechanical terminations and the EVERFLEX Bending Strain Relief.
PMI Ball Joint Tow Point Adaptor is engineered to meet your application requirements.
BALL JOINT Tow Point Adaptors
BALL JOINT Tow Point Adaptors are engineered in sizes, materials, and degrees of articulation to meet your system requirements. In addition, special “breakaway” or weak link features can be incorporated.
Configuration and prices are quoted to meet your strength, off-axis load angles, and interface specifications.
Specify rope or cable diameter, construction or type, cable rated breaking strength, lay direction of outer strength members, anticipated off-axis loading, degree of articulation, any size restrictions, and mounting configuration.
