The Loos "Professional Models" have a higher degree of accuracy and are easier to use than standard models. The cable can be adjusted while the gauge remains on the cable. "Just watch the pointer move."
All readings are based on a 302/304 1X19 SSAC Breaking Strength.
Hold the gauge with the left hand and place the cable between the two nylon spools as shown. With the right hand pull the lanyard and extend the spring until the hook on the nylon slider can be hooked on the cable. Release the lanyard. Read the needle position on the scale. Refer to the calibration table obtain correct tension in the cable. The gauge can be left on the wire for "hands free" adjusting of the cable.
To assure accurate readings make sure that the slider moves freely in the frame slot and does not bind. Also, lubricate the slider slot frequently with silicone lubricant.
Note: An extra 1/4" inch hole is provided in the frame of the instrument for an attachment of a short lanyard and snap hook (not furnished) for securing the gauge to the cable. This will prevent loss of the instrument if it becomes inadvertently detached.
