Drilling mid post when using sleeves.

Time Saver!Time saver! Drilling mid post when using sleeves. If you are using sleeves over 4x4 post you can drill all initial through holes into the sleeve with the 7/32 bit and barely tap the 4 x 4 inside. Then remove the sleeve and drill the post with a larger bit,  1/4" works well. This goes faster and the larger bit drills a straighter hole.

Measuring you cable.

Time Saver!Time saver! Once you have your tensioners properly set up you need to cut and measure your cable. Begin by measuring your entire run between end post (measure to the inside).

Setting up tensioners for installation.

When you are measuring you cable for a run you should have your tensioner studs unthreaded 3/4 inch. If you have a long run (over 30 feet)  or are attempting to use one tensioner and a stationary connector at the other end you should extend at least an additional 1/4".
