Re: Shroud clips, oversized or undersized?

These be what I bought.

Amazon.com: Loos Stainless Steel 302/304 Wire Rope, 1x19 Strand, 5/32 Amazon.com: Loos Stainless Steel 302/304 Wire Rope, 1x19 Strand, 5/32" Bare OD, 50' Length, 3300 lbs Breaking Strength: Industrial & Scientific



Amazon.com: Loos Cableware AN100-C5 Stainless Steel Thimble for 5/32 Amazon.com: Loos Cableware AN100-C5 Stainless Steel Thimble for 5/32" Diameter Wire Rope (10 Piece): Industrial & Scientific



Loos Cableware SL2-5P 10 Piece Zinc Plated Copper Crimping Sleeve Set for 5/32 Loos Cableware SL2-5P 10 Piece Zinc Plated Copper Crimping Sleeve Set for 5/32" Diameter Wire Rope (Pack of 10): Wire Rope Crimping Loop Sleeves: Amazon.com: Industrial & Scientific



The reason I am replacing the stays is because the current wire is 1x7 and has kinks in it where the previous owner pinched it, also I am upgrading from 1/8" because I was worried the 1x7 1/8" might break after enough time if I use a trapeze.



Also they are 5/32", do you think the smaller 1/8" tool would work or do I have to get the bigger one.

If not I would end up buying one of these.
