How to use #PT-CR Tension Gauge

HOW TO MEASURE

1. Hold the gauge with the left hand and place the cable between the two nylon spools as shown in Figure 1.

2. With the right hand pull the lanyard and extend the spring until the hook on the nylon slider can be hooked on to the cable as shown in Figure 2.

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.
