Let’s say you’ve just installed 10 rows of cable. Whew, looks good! Then you discover you forgot the darn cable spacer. Ack! No worries. Just grab your Cable Release Key, release the cables, add the spacer, tighten the cables again, and you’re done.
Everyone makes mistakes.
If you’re installing a cable railing, prevent future headaches and get yourself a Cable Release Key. It lets you release the tension on an installed length of cable without cutting the cable.
