Small Stainless Steel Screw Eye installation specs
  • For wood and covered wood surfaces (wood beams, glue lams, timbers, ledge flashing, etc.).
  • Pre-drill surfaces to prevent surface damage. For wood, drill small pilot-hole at least 1/2” deep. For sheet metal flashing over wood, you may need 2 pilot-holes, 1 for the sheet metal and a smaller one for the wood core.
  • For use as Cable Guides, install the small stainless steel screw eyes every 2 feet. Tighter spacing may be required on curved or complex surface shapes.
  • Make sure Cable Guide holds cable within ½” of the installation surface.
  • All small stainless steel screw eyes have a 7/32” inside diameter eyelet, a 11/16” long lag threaded stem.
When and Where to Use Small stainless steel screw eyes:
  • The small stainless steel screw eyes are designed to be used as Cable Guides in both wood and sheet metal 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.
Small stainless steel screw eye Installation Tips:
  • Always pre-drill the surface. This helps prevent damage from splitting or checking.
  • A screw eye driver (not included) can be used for both the large and small screw eyes. Use caution not to strip out the holes with an overpowered screw gun.
  • Do not use screw eyes in thin sheet metal surfaces. Contact Nixalite of America Inc for alternatives.
  • 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.
  • If attaching in wood, make sure the wood is solid, dry and has no rot or end checking. Do not install any hardware into a wood knot.
  • Always follow the Cable and Cable Hardware maintenance schedules available from Nixalite of America Inc.
