Cable cranks are an economical, permanent wire or cable tightener. They are characterized as strong, lightweight and rust resistant.

To install cable cranks, place wire or cable in slot on side of spool, wind the wire onto the spool, then wind the wire onto spool using a 1/2" drive radchet, when at the desired tension simply put the wire clip through the two holes on crank to keep it from unwinding.


Cable cranks are mechanical devices used in various industries to convert circular motion into linear motion. They consist of a handle or lever attached to a rotating shaft that is connected to a cable. As the shaft rotates, the cable is pulled or released, allowing for precise control over the movement of objects. Cable cranks are commonly used in applications where precise and controlled linear motion is required, such as in conveyor systems, robotic arms, and industrial machinery. They are often made of durable materials such as steel or aluminum to withstand heavy loads and harsh environments.

Application Areas

  • Conveyor systems
  • Robotic arms
  • Industrial machinery
  • Automated manufacturing processes
  • Material handling equipment

Treatment and Risks

  • Regular maintenance to ensure proper functioning
  • Risks of cable breakage if not inspected regularly
  • Proper training for operators to prevent accidents
  • Use of appropriate safety measures when handling cable cranks


  • Control panel adjustment in manufacturing plants
