Tapered Diagonal Cushion Deep Throat Reach Safety wire installation highlights, double twist method: (Aerospace standard AS567) 1. The safety wire is installed so that if the fastener has any tendency to loosen, it will cause the safety wire to tighten. 2. The maximum span of safety wire (between tension points) shall be 6" (152 mm). 3. The maximum length of safety wire to be used in a single application is 24" (609 mm). 4. The number of twists per inch (1 twist = 1 /2 complete turn) depends upon wire diameter: 0.20" to 0.25" dia., 8-14 twists; 0.032" to 0.041" dia., 6-11 twists; .051" to .060" dia., 4-9 twists. 5. The wire looped around the outside of the fastener must always be routed UNDER the wire protruding from the hole, so the loop will stay down and not cause slack. This often requires the direction of the wrap and twist of strands to REVERSE from run-to-run, or run-to-pigtail. 6. Pigtail should be no more than 3 /4" long and have a minimum of four (4) twists. Ends should be cut and bent toward fastener to prevent snags.
