Dillon Quick Check Tension Meter RED

The Dillon Quick-Check Tension Meter quickly measures wire tension in cable guardrails, guy lines and rigging. Simply place on the wire, push down the handle and get a reading. Store up to 20 wire sizes for accurate results without the use of tables or manual calculations.



The Fastest Cable Tension Meter

The Dillon QuickCheck can be placed on a cable, measure its tension, and removed in under five seconds! There are no complex lookup tables, no conversion charts. The operator can quickly select from 15 different wire sizes and types stored in Quick-Check’s memory. The Check-Tensioning mode graphically displays the current and target tensions for extremely quick setting of line tension. Even the infrequent battery changes are quick.

Broad Application

The QuickCheck can be employed in many industries to ensure proper tensioning. Typical applications include tower and stack guy wires, pretensioned cable barriers, bridges, elevators, winch rope, prestressed concrete, fall arrest systems, aircraft cables and utilities.


Tension capacities:

2000 lb/10 kN/1000 kg

8000 lb/35 kN/3500 kg

Wire sizes: 3/16 inch through 3/4 inch

Accuracy: + 3% instrument capacity (calibrated to specific wire size & type + 5% with same wire diameter as calibrated but different wire type)

Number of calibrations: Up to 15 can be stored independently

Operating range: -4°F to 140°F (-20°C to 60°C)

Loading error: Cable elongation of only 0.08 inch (2mm)

Display: Dot-graphic LCD display supports full text and 1 inch high digits.

Sheave range: Sheave accommodates rated wire size and 1/2” smaller. Sheaves are not compatible with larger wire sizes – order additional sheaves for wire sizes.

Suggested wire calibrations:

Calibrate each wire diameter needed with the most appropriate sheaves. If two wire types are used of the same diameter (e.g.½” 7x7 and ½” 6x19), calibrate each type independently if accuracy is critical.


Environment protection: Suitable for continued outdoor use.

Tension units of measure: pound-force, kilogram force, Newtons

Resolution: configurable low/med/high

Recalibration: At user discretion. Commonly 24 months but should be more frequently with heavy use.

Size: 10 x 23 x 3 inch (25 x 59 x 8 cm)

Weight: Approx 11 lb (5 kg)
