  3. Release the Lanyard. Read the needle position on the scale. Refer to the calibration table to obtain the correct ten- sion in the cable. The gauge can be left on the cable for “hands free” adjustment.
  4. To assure accurate readings make sure that the slider moves freely in the frame slot and does not bind. Lubricate the slider slot with silicone lubricant if needed.
