Element clips are fitted to the spreaders to hold the wire elements in place, there is one for each band. These are made from UV resistant non conductive materials. They are held in place with a stainless steel machine screw and nut.
The end of each spreader section is sleeved with aluminium ferrules to prevent them splitting when pressure is placed on them when they are bent to form the shape of the G3TXQ Hexbeam by MW0JZE. Two (2) cords are fitted to the ends of each spreader be means of an eyelet or similar non ferrous fixing. One (1) is to be attached to the top of the MW0JZE - G3TXQ Hexbeam centrepost to form the bend in the spreader, the second (2nd) cord is attached to the tip of the next spreader, this forms the radius support for each tip. The cords are UV resistant polyester and each have a stainless steel hook or loop attached to the ends.
