Rigging Tension Gauge 3/16" to 9/32"

Part #: Z2315
Use of this tool is the the only way to accurately tune the rigging on your Catalina. It is also suitable for the 3/16" wire used on the upper shrouds of a Catalina 25 and Catalina 27. This gauge can also be used for the larger diameter shrouds used on boats up to and including the Catalina 30.
Simply hook the gage on your shroud and pull the lanyard until the pointer reaches its mark. Read the number on the scale, then use the table decal attached to determine the load on your shroud in pounds of tension.

How much load is my forestay under? Is my rig balanced port to starboard? It is very easy to determine with this simple tool.
