 Sidewinders for Concrete Cable Guides installation specs
  • Use as cable guides in masonry surfaces including concrete, solid stone and block, poured slabs. etc.
  • Use the #Sammy Socket to install ALL Sidewinders.
  • For use as Cable Guides, install the sidewinders every 2 feet along the path of the Net Cables. Tighter spacing may be required on curved or complex surface shapes.
  • Make sure Cable Guide holds cable within 3/4” of the installation surface.
  • Make sure that all the holes in the Sidewinders line up with the path of the cable.
When and Where to Use Sidewinders for Concrete Cable Guides:
  • The Sidewinders for Concrete are designed to be used as Cable Guides in solid masonry surfaces. Used with the tensioned perimeter cable systems used to secure bird netting enclosures and with overhead grid wire systems. Also used with our deer & perimeter fence to create support cables for fence posts.
Sidewinders for Concrete Cable Guide Installation Tips:
  • Always use the masonry drill included with each 25 count Sidewinder box
  • Always use the #Sammy Socket driver to install Sidewinders. This is specifically made to install the Sidewinders without over tightening.
  • After drilling the ¼” x 2” hole, blow out all debris and apply a small quantity of adhesive in the hole before installing the Sidewinder for Concrete.
  • IMPORTANT: Always make sure the the surface will support the tension from the cable system. Do not attach corner hardware to surfaces in poor condition or where there is no structural support.
  • Always follow the Cable and Cable Hardware maintenance schedules available from Nixalite of America Inc.
When you purchase a 25 count box of the Sidewinders for Concrete (#SWC 2.0) you get a carbide tipped masonry drill bit to drill the 1/4" diameter and 2" deep hole for each Sidewinder. If you purchase other masonry bits to drill these holes - MAKE SURE that the carbide does not exceed 1/4" wide (0.250").

The Sidewinder manufacturer recommends using a hammer action drill to drill the holes in the solid concrete. Make sure to blow the cuttings out of the hole before you seat the sidewinder using the Sammy Socket Driver (#Sammy Socket).
