Control Cable Bird Cage Tool Kit

(2 reviews) Write a Review

Our Wire Bird Cage Kit is a specialized kit gives you the ability to build your own ultra-durable, factory quality control cables with confidence and ease. A definite “must have” for any tool nerd worth their salt.     

“Bird-caging” is a crucial process thats performed prior to solder bonding a cable ferrule to a control cable. This process creates a large, knot-like (or bird cage) formation at the tip of the wire which promotes a tighter solder bond and provides superior pull-out resistance so the cable doesn’t depend solely on the solder bond. 

The only tool of its kind on the planet. This kit is based off the bird cage tool used by the legendary Venhill Engineering UK in their own cable manufacturing process, with a few minor tweaks to accommodate garage/workshop use. Simple yet robust and built to last a lifetime.  

Perfect tool to compliment our Revival Cycles Signature Universal Throttle Cable Kit

***You will need a vice to hold the jaws and clamp the cable. Then use a hammer to stamp the supplied punch to form the 'birdcage' 

  • Suitable for use with: 1.5mm, 2mm, and 2.5mm dia. cable 
  • Zinc-Plated Steel

    expensive but works great! so far have used it for throttle cable for kart...I'll need to make a lot of cables for it to pay for itself but when you want custom parts it's great to make them yourself!
