HOW TO MEASURE GUIDE:

Before placing your order, assess all gym cables for signs of damage or deterioration even if the coating is in-tact. 
Often if one cable is damaged, especially if the gym is over 5 or 6 years old, the other cables should also be replaced. Gym cables Australia supplies 6mm fibre reinforced cables often your existing cables will be 4mm-5mm. 
Inspect for:
- Bumps or lumps along the cable 

- Twisting or spiralling of the cable

- Cracked or missing plastic coating

- Frayed or exposed wire

- End fitting coming loose or cracked

- Stretching feeling under load

- Non-smooth function

STEP 2: TAKE NOTE OF THE PATHWAY OF ALL CABLES THEN REMOVE:

Before undoing any bolts or removing any cables, we recommend taking photos of the
layout of your machine, or drawing images to ensure cables are replaced in the correct
manner. 

If your Cable is from a Multi-gym it may contain floating pulleys such as in this image,
If this is the case, we reccomend using masking tape or rope to maintain tension on the 

Floating pulleys where possible to avoid confusion later.

STEP 3: MEASURE YOUR CABLE USING THIS GUIDE

If possible, connect your cable to a part of the machine using a carabiner, or to another fixed object so that you can straighten the cable under tension. You could use a helper to do this.

We recommend taping the end of your tape measure with duct tape or cloth tape, to the end 
of the cable so you can tension both the tape measure and the cable at the same time. Alternatively if you have a long work-bench or work station you can utilize this.

 

Use this guide to ensure the correct measurement - if your unsure you can always contact us.

 

* If your cable is significantly stretched, ensure to make any suitable deductions to ensure the tightest possible fit. (Call us for further instructions if needed).
