How To Measure A Cable
You can print off a pdf where all you have to do is fill in the blank spots with your measurements, A, B and C
All recliner parts are universal. Makes of recliners, brand names or manufactures part numbers don't mean anything.
1 Measure the complete length of the cable C from barrel to the very end of the "S".
2 Now measure the black plastic sheath B including the clips on both ends.
3 Measure the barrel diammeter A. This is across the round face not the length and should be 3.5mm.
4 Subtrack the complete cable length from the black plastic sheath length and this gives you the exposed cable length. This is the most important measurement. Your old cable can be shorter but still have the same exposed cable length as ours.
