Special Case 01 for Installing Medium Kits' "Classic"

The following installation instructions are only valid for some medium Classic kits; the instructions apply to kits that contain not only cable mounts ("cross mounts"), but also eyebolts. This applies to systems 2030, 2040, 4010, 4050, 5010, 6020, 6030, 6040, 7050 and 7060. These kits can be assembled relatively quickly. The eyebolts allow the outer edge of the trellis to be framed with a single cable segment (they create a circumferential "rope frame" in the corners). All information on this page is to be supplemented with the 10 - 25 assembly diagrams in the respective cable system you have chosen. Please use these links and go to the wire rope system you have ordered. Before ordering, please also check to see if you need tools!

The symbols in the diagram represent the wall mounts and thus the drilling points. Small grey circles (diagram) show cross mounts; grey ellipses indicate eyebolts and show their orientation in relation to the cable route. After drilling, clean all holes with a hole brush and/or blower. If the kit containes thimbles, position them on the eyebolts (where the cable with form a loop), and close them with pliers (photo).

The red crosses show how to align the grooves of the cross mounts. The grooves may need to be positioned diagonally at a 45 degree angle for some kits. Now install all mounts, referring to the instructions on the product sheet for each respective mount (either WH 10151 or WH 10150 for most kits). Grease the shank of the mount, grip the flange nut with an open-end wrench, and screw in. In exceptional cases, as with WM 10081, a screwdriver tip can be inserted into the grooves of the mount and screwed in this way. insert the tip of a screwdriver into the grooves of the mount and screw in. Remove the grub screw from all cross mounts before mounting.

The diagrams of the basic form show an installation with as little wire rope cutting as possible and which does not require a turnbuckle (wire rope tensioner). In some basic forms, the rope mount is not attached with loops and rope clamps, but attached directly in the cross mounts. For this purpose, the rope is threaded through several eyebolts, as shown, and laid loosely in the cable mount with about a 10 cm protrusion. The grub screw is inserted, moderately tightened, and in the second step, tightened a bit more by gripping the mount at the flange nut, or in exceptional cases at the flat nut directly behind the head (photo) with an open-end wrench.

In many basic forms, the outer "rope mount/frame" is attached with two loops. For this, the wire rope is initially pulled through several or even all ring screws, in the order shown in each case. The wire rope is not yet laid into the cross mounts. A double kink in the wire rope (photo) with 15 cm overhang facilitates the formation of the following (first) loop.

After threading, the first loop of cable is formed at a specific eyebolt (diagram). The cable is wound around the pressed-together thimble and clamped immediately behind it with a wire rope grip. The excess cable behind the grip should be approximately 10 cm. Then, the cable (slack) is guided through the grooves of the cable mount (diagram) without the grub screws being inserted or tightened.

The next steps take place at the eyebolt through which the cable was threaded through first. There the other end of the cable behind the mount is now gripped by means of a mounting vice and tightened by hand (with about 5 - 10 kg force). Here, a second mounting vice for securing both cable strands just behind the eyebolt (photo) is helpful, so that the cable grip (diagram) can be set easily. Then the vices are loosened and the wire rope is - with about 10 cm overhang - cut behind the grip with cable cutters.

If a cable is tensioned through a cable mount (diagram), the second mounting vice should be clamped directly behind the cable clamp (photo) to temporarily secure the tensioned state. The same can be achieved with a clamping ring or a cross clamp (often included anyway in the wire rope system). Remove the temporary clamping element after tightening the grub screw in the cable mount.

If the cable -- in this case the framing cable -- runs through one or more mounts, it is first inserted in the mounts without screwing in or tightening the grub screws, or if so- only for temporariliy securing  the cable. The final tightening of these grub screws will be done at the very end or after a second (perpedicular) cable has been inserted into the mount (which correponds in the diagram to the mount marked in bold red).

If more cable sections are shown in the diagrams, they are mounted according to the instructions given above. A floating cross clamp will be set at cable intersections (when indicated in the diagrams). Finally, all protruding cable ends receive pressed-on end sleeves (photo). If the let the wire ropes protrude about 10 cm, they can be easily grasped for re-tensioning in the future as needed.
