TROUBLESHOOTING AND MAINTENANCE
Inspect and tighten all parts each time you use the home gym system. Replace any worn parts immediately. The
home gym system can be cleaned using a damp cloth and mild non-abrasive detergent. Do not use solvents.
TIGHTENING THE CABLES
Woven cable, the type of cable used on the home gym system, can stretch slightly when it is first used. If there
is slack in the cables before resistance is felt, the cables should be tightened.
Tightening the Medium and Short Cables
If any slack is felt when using the front weight stack, both
the Medium Cable (58) and the Short Cable (23) will need
to be tightened. Insert the weight pin into the middle of
the weight stack. Slack can be removed from these
cables three ways:
See drawing 1. Tighten the 1/4" Nylon Locknut (2) that
connects the end of the Short Cable (23) to the Long "U"-
Bracket (57).
See drawing 1. Move the 3 1/2" Pulley (15) to the other
hole in the Long "U"-Bracket (57). Remove the 3/8" Nylon
Locknut (21) and the 3/8" x 2" Bolt (12) from the Cable
Trap (66), Pulley, and Long "U"-Bracket. Re-attach the
Pulley and Cable Trap. Be sure that the Cable Trap is in
the proper position and that the Cable and Pulley move
smoothly.
See drawing 2. Tighten the 1/4" Nylon Locknut (2) that
connects the end of the Medium Cable (58) to the Small
"U"-Bracket (71).
Tightening the Long Cable
If any slack is felt when using the rear weight stack, the
Long Cable (72) will need to be tightened. Insert the
weight pin into the middle of the weight stack. Slack can be
removed from these cables two ways:
See drawing 2. Tighten the 1/4" Nylon Locknut (2) that
connects the end of the Long Cable (72) to the Small "U"-
Bracket (71).
See drawing 3. Move the "V"-Pulley (50) to another hole
in the Squat Arm Upright (56). Remove the 3/8" Nylon
Locknut (21) and the 3/8" x 5" Bolt (not shown) from the
Long Cable Trap (not shown), and Pulley. Re-attach the
Pulley and Cable Trap. Be sure that the Cable trap is in
the proper position and that the Cable and Pulley move
smoothly.
Do not overtighten the cables, or the top weight will be lifted off the weight stack. If a cable tends to slip
off the pulleys often, the cable may have become twisted. Remove the cable and re-install it. If the cables
need to be replaced, see ORDERING REPLACEMENT PARTS on the back cover of this manual.
