Use

For 3 and 4 mm cable, for heavy kits in accordance with the specifications of the respective cable system (if purchased as a pre-assembled-kit). Simple or crosswise cable guidance; the distance from mount to mount should preferably not exceed 1.8 m at horizontal ropes and 2.2 m at vertical ropes. For solid/massive wood (half-timbered custom houses). Wall distance adjustable, recommended 6-7 cm, maximum 8 cm (then better with 3 mm wire rope). For support in choosing a suitable wire rope trellis fitting, refer to our section on cable cross mounts.

 

Assembly

The (metric) machine thread of the mount is screwed directly into a pre-drilled hole in the wood. If necessary, refer to our instruction manual on drilling. For optimal sealing, the wood should be reasonably flat or made so (sanded down). Pilot-drill from 10.5 to 11 mm, about 9 - 10 cm deep. Loosen the grub screw, slide the moving parts of the mount forward. Grease the shaft and place on the wood. Guide a flat iron 4 mm (flat open-end wrench made of chrome vanadium steel) into the crosshead's groove, screw in, and adjust. Then slide the spring washer, cover plate (polished washer), and gasket to the wall, and tighten. Further installation carried out as described for heavy kits.

 

Noteworthy

By grinding a short serration (longitudinal groove) at the end the threaded shaft, it can act like a 'self-tapping screw' and facilitate screwing in. WM 12191 can also be used as a bolt for supports and carports, etc.. with push-through mounting, for which we supply a bolt (counter-pressure) set  (for the back side) for an additional charge.

 

Origin

Made in Germany (Saxony), hexagon nuts from the Far East.
