Don't know about the rest of the readers, but I don't yet have a mental
picture. Ferrules are for compression fittings for plumbing.

To connect the two ends of a loop of wire, I bought a package containing
2 ferrules and 2 stops.
I know how to use the ferrules but how are the stops used?
Most ferrules and stops are fitted by compression tools.
The purpose of stops is to prevent wire rope ends from fraying.
They usually have a blind hole and are shorter than a ferrule.
Ferrules usually have to be nipped twice, stop ends just once.
Ferrules are used to make an eye with two sections of line passing through
the fitting. Stops are used to prevent the line from passing through an
opening, only one section of the line passes through the fitting.
