 Which is stronger between 1/8 inch 7x7 steel cable, or 1/16 inch steel cable? 

The recommended safe working load for 1/8 inch 7 x 7 steel cable construction is a 5:1 ratio (cable break strength divided by 5). Therefore the approximate break strength is 1700 pounds (771.1 Kilograms) resulting in a safe working load of 340 pounds (154.2 Kilograms).

Safe working load for 1/16 Inch 7×7  is 96 pounds (43.5 kilograms) because the approximate break strength is 480 pounds (217.7 kilograms)

 

Is it possible to use a thinner gauge wire cable with the UrbanTrapeze 3.0? Specifically, is 1/16 in. uncoated galvanized aircraft cable compatible with the UrbanTrapeze 3.0?

It is always possible to insert a thinner gauge cable into the UrbanTrapeze 3.0. BUT, it was designed to work with 1/8” (3.0mm) cable. There are no long-term studies the confirm the performance reliability of mixing these two items. We DO NOT recommend using a thinner gauge wire in this instance.
