The ProLok socket system for dragline drums is a safe and proven alternative to OEM rope clamps used to secure wire ropes on dragline drums. The ProLok drum sockets mount directly to the rope drum and eliminate the OEM rope clamps. Only two simple hand tools are required to secure and release the wire rope from the ProLok drum socket. Heavy 1-1/2” impacts and multiple rope clamps are eliminated therefore reducing the time to change ropes and improving the safety aspects of the rope change process.
