The Loos PT-3 has a higher degree of accuracy and is easier to use than standard models. The cable can be adjusted while the gauge remains on the cable, you can "Just watch the pointer move." 

Loos Cableware gauges are used to measure the tension in cables and used for setting the proper rig tension in the standing rigging of sailboats. Can also be used for other applications such as supporting cables for radio towers, large tents and other structures. The gauges are relatively inexpensive and are suitable for the rugged marine environment. 

The Professional Model provides increased durability, accuracy and convenience when compared to the popular Loos standard models. The gauge may be hooked on the wire and will remain in position while the tension is adjusted. Manufactured of rugged anodized aluminum, this gauge is corrosive resistant and will give years of service. Detailed operating instructions are included with each tension gauge.

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.
