A trademarked method of splicing wire rope when a thimble or eye is required at the end. The end of the wire is threaded through a non-corrosive alloy ferrule of a size convenient for the wire and then threaded back to form a loop round the thimble. The ferrule is then gripped lightly in a hydraulic press while the wire is pulled through to make the loop the required size or to lie closely round the thimble. Further pressure is then exerted to make the metal of the ferrule flow round the strands of the wire, thus holding each firmly in position, and the splice is complete.
A Talurit® splice is as strong as a fully tucked eyesplice and is more economical in the use of the rope. When making an eyesplice by hand, 30 centimetres (1 ft) of the wire is needed for tucking for every 2.5 centimetres (1 in.) of its circumference; the Talurit® method uses only 2.5 centimetres for the whole splice.
