What to consider in purchasing commercial cable attachments?

Choosing the appropriate cable attachments, one must first consider some factors. Below are your considerations  when purchasing a commercial cable attachment.

Build quality and durability

Commercial attachments are frequently used in a gym and result in being worn out. Thus, buy an attachment that is durable and needs no maintenance like steel cable attachments. Also, if you want a fabric or nylon attachment, see to it that you have inspected its materials and appearance. 

Positive Grip

One feature that needs to be considered in buying cable attachments is the “Grip”. Although nylon or rubber grips are comfortable for grasping, it has some issues in durability. Steel handles with knurling patterns are the most ideal choice as it guarantees a perfect grip even when sweating. 

Cleaning and Maintenance

Cleaning and maintaining gym equipment is one of the aspects that you need to consider in buying a cable attachment. An ideal cable attachment is the steel handles since they can easily be cleaned and don’t need maintenance. 

Meanwhile, cable attachments with nylon or rubber grips are difficult to clean and maintain and need to be replaced regularly. Also, see to it that fabric or nylon attachments can be easily cleaned and maintained.

Ergonomics and Biomechanics

This feature is the most important as it can affect the whole performance of the user. Buy a cable attachment that has rotating handles since it can decrease the stress level on your elbows, shoulder, and wrist joints. 

How it looks

Another feature to consider is its appearance. High quality chrome finish gives off a clean and smooth look but decorative ones will wear off easily.

What is the price range of a cable attachment?

The price of a cable attachment ranges from $15 to $80, depending on its type.

Is it advisable to purchase cable attachments in bulk?
