Bottlescrew to Fork Terminal Cable Assembly
    Installation Instructions

    1. Position and install the selected fixing hardware to the end posts of each cable span at equal spacings to comply with any relevant local government regulations. (Please check with your council)

    2. If using nylon grommets in intermediate posts, drill 9.5mm (or 3/8”) holes. If posts are timber, half way through from each side is recommended.

    3. Remove the pins from bottlescrew and forks by releasing the keeper ring with a pair of needle nosed pliers. If running the cable through intermediate posts, disassemble the whole bottlescrew so that the threaded end fits through the pre-drilled holes, and thread through to the end span.

    4. Align the bottlescrew end or fork with the end fixing hardware and replace the pin. Fit the keeper ring by inserting the protruding end of the ring into the hole in the end of the pin and push fully home.

    5. If needed, reassemble the bottlescrew, keeping the exposed threads on either side of the bottlescrew body as equal as possible, and finger tighten to take up slack in the cable.

    6. To tension the cable, use a 5.5mm spanner or small shifter to hold steady the swaged end of the bottlescrew.

      Please note that it is important that the cable itself is not allowed to wind in either direction during tensioning.

    7. Place a centre punch or similar into the hole in the bottlescrew body and steadily tension, until the cable is satisfactorily taut. While holding the bottlescrew body still with the centre punch, bring the lock nuts up to it and tighten with an appropriate spanner.

    8. Check that all cables are uniformly tensioned and that all fixing hardware and lock nuts are safe and tight.

    9. Stand back and admire.

      Bottlescrew to Stud Terminal Cable Assembly
      Installation Instructions

      1. Position and install the selected fixing hardware to the end post at the Bottlescrew end of the span and drill 6mm (or if using Tensioners, 8mm) holes at the Stud Terminal end at equal spacings to comply with any relevant local government regulations. (Please check with your council)

      2. If using nylon grommets in intermediate posts, drill 9.5mm (or 3/8”) holes. If posts are timber, half way through from each side is recommended.

      3. Remove the pins from bottlescrew by releasing the keeper ring with a pair of needle nosed pliers. If running the cable through intermediate posts, remove the nut from the Stud so that the threaded end fits through the pre-drilled holes, and thread through to the end span.

      4. Place the threaded end of the Stud Terminal through the end hole and retain with a nut or Tensioner (see Components) and align the Bottlescrew with the end fixing hardware and replace the pin. Fit the keeper ring by inserting the protruding end of the ring into the hole in the end of the pin and push fully home.

      5. Keeping the exposed threads on either side of the bottlescrew body as equal as possible, finger tighten to take up slack in the cable.

      6. To tension the cable, use a 5.5mm spanner or small shifter to hold steady the swaged end of the bottlescrew.

        Please note that it is important that the cable itself is not allowed to wind in either direction during tensioning.

        Stud to Stud Terminal Cable Assembly
        Installation Instructions

        1. Position and install the selected fixing hardware (Tensioner, Nutsert, etc. – see “Components”) to the end posts of each cable span at equal spacings to comply with any relevant local government regulations. (Please check with your council)

        2. If using nylon Grommets in intermediate posts, drill 9.5mm (or 3/8”) holes. If posts are timber, half way through from each side is recommended.

        3. Remove the nut from the threaded Stud and feed Grommets onto assembly as required. Run the cable through intermediate posts and through the end hole.

        4. Align the Stud Terminal with the end fixing hardware (Tensioner, etc) and replace nut if necessary.

        5. Keeping the exposed threads on either end of the assembly as equal as possible, finger tighten to take up slack in the cable.

        6. To tension the cable, use a 5.5mm spanner or small shifter to hold steady the swaged end of the Stud Terminal,

          Please note that it is important that the cable itself is not allowed to wind in either direction during tensioning.

        7. If using Tensioners, insert a 5mm Hex Wrench (Allen Key) into the end of the Tensioner and tighten steadily, until the cable is satisfactorily taut. Bring the lock nuts up to it and tighten with an appropriate spanner.

        8. Check that all cables are uniformly tensioned and that all fixing hardware and lock nuts are safe and tight.

        9. Stand back and admire.
