The Loos economy tension gauge takes the guesswork out of cable tension adjustment. It's especially designed for accurate, repeatable tuning of a sailboat's standing rigging. Manufactured of rugged anodized aluminum, the gauge is corrosion-resistant and will provide years of service. Ideal for determining loads on sailboat rigging, guy wires, fences, or any application where cable or wire are installed under load. For cable sizes . 3/16", 7/32", 1/4", 9/32"

To measure tension, simply hook the gauge on the cable as illustrated. Pull the lanyard (Blue arrow) until the pointer is positioned at the black calibration mark (red arrow), read the scale at the exact point where the middle of the cable touches the scale (white arrow). For best accuracy, the gauge should be held so that the scale barely touches the cable, thus eliminating friction. A word of caution, however: excessive pull on the lanyard, which pulls the pointer beyond the calibration mark, may permanently bend the spring and damage the gauge.

  To convert the scale reading to actual tension in pounds for each wire diameter, see the conversion table on the gauge. Metric tension gauge available on request.

Note: The intended use of this gauge is to be used on 302/304 1x19 Stainless Steel cable in appropriate sizes. If used on other cable types, sizes and construction your reading would be consistent (repeatable) but pound tension values would differ from those listed on the label.
