Product Description

The Loos Cableware metric tension gauge measures the tension in cables and rods to check for proper setup in sail rigging and supporting cables for large tents, radio towers, and other structures. This analog gauge shows present tension in kilograms (kg) and has a measurement accuracy of + or - 5 percent. The gauge shows readings on a graduated scale, and a calibration table on the unit converts a scale reading to the corresponding present tension and percentage breaking strength of the rope, based on 302/304 1 x 19 stainless-steel wire rope. The gauge can remain hooked on the wire during testing while the tension is adjusted. The Loos Cableware metric tension gauge has an anodized aluminum body that resists corrosion and wear. A 1/4" hole on the gauge's body allows a lanyard or hook to be attached to the gauge for securing it to the cable.

Force gauges, also called push-pull gauges or tension gauges, measure the tensile (pull) or compression (push) force applied to an object. They are used to test the strength and functionality of a variety of machines, electronic components, cables, wires, and consumer products in scientific, medical, automotive, quality assurance, and manufacturing applications. A digital force gauge shows the amount of force in digits on the gauge's display. Response time varies among digital force gauges depending on the speed of the processor. An analog (or mechanical) force gauge shows measurements on a calibrated dial. Analog force gauges are not as precise as digital force gauges, but they provide instantaneous measurements and can be used in a wider range of environmental conditions than digital force gauges. Hooks, compression plates, levers, handles, test stands, and other accessories can be used with the gauge for taking measurements on objects with a range of shapes and sizes.

Loos & Co. manufactures aircraft cable and wire rope and related measurement tools. The company, founded in 1958 and headquartered in Pomfret, CT, meets International Organization for Standardization (ISO) standard 9001.

This year, the boat yard got my commissioning paperwork wrong and left me rigging my boat myself due to their backed up schedule. I purchased this along with the PT-2M and I am very happy with the purchases. I am sure the $300 I paid in total has paid for itself the first year. I also love the fact I can make modifications and check tension throughout the summer. This is expensive given it probably costs just a few bucks to make, but there are no other substitutes.
