  • Carried easily in one hand
  • Portable and rugged -- designed for outdoor use and rough environments
  • Uses field-proven sensor and electronics
  • Built in averaging saves time and eliminates errors
  • Stores calibrations for up to 15 unique wire sizes and types
  • Built in temperature sensor with patented automatic tension adjustment
  • Sheaves with bearings eliminate friction and provide the best accuracy
  • Accommodates a wide range of wire sizes and styles
  • Displays the actual tension and eliminates conversion tables
  • Extended handle length facilitates easy placement on cable

Dillon Quick Check Tension Meter / Wire Tester


The Fastest Cable Tension Meter

The Dillon Quick Check Tension Meter can be placed on a cable, measure its tension, and removed in under 5 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 Dillon Quick-Check can be employed in many industries to ensure proper tensioning. Typical applications include tower and stack guy wires, pre tensioned cable barriers, bridges, elevators, winch rope, pre stressed concrete, fall arrest systems, aircraft cables and utilities


  • Wire Sizes: 3/16 inch through 3/4 inch
  • Accuracy ±3% instrument capacity (calibrated to specific wire size and 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 (2 mm)
  • 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 Calibration: calibrate each wire diameter needed with the most appropriate sheaves. If two wire types are used of the same diameter (eg. 1/2"7x7 and 1/2" 6x19), calibrate each type independently if accuracy is critical
  • Environmental Protection: suitable for continued outdoor use
  • Tension Units of Measure: pound-force, kilogram-force, Newtons
  • Resolution: configurable low / med / high
  • Re calibration: at user discretion. Commonly 24 months but should be more frequently calibrated with heavy use. Factory re calibrations conducted typically in 2-4 days. On-site re calibration may be possible through your dillon distributor
  • Size: 10 x 23 x 3 inches (25 x 59 x 8 cm)
  • Weight: approximately 11 lb (5 kg)

Ordering Information

  1. Select Quick-Check maximum capacity
  2. Select desired sheaves (sheave sets include set of 3 sheaves with bearings)
  3. Select calibrations - the first wire calibration is included with each Quick-Check. Additional calibrations - up to 15 total per instrument are available. For additional calibrations, please phone 1-800-832-0055 to indicate what wire sizes and types to calibrate

Example: Order a QuickCheck that will be used to tensions up to 5500 lbf that will be used with 5/8" 6x19, 1/2" 1x7 and 3/8" 1x7 wire

Part Number Description
36289-0014 10000 lbf Quick-Check Instrument
36309-0028 5/8" sheave set
1st calibration 5/8" 6x19 wire
2nd calibration 1/2" 1x7 wire
3rd calibration 3/8" 1x7 wire


What size sheaves should be purchased?

It makes sense to take advantage of the range for the sheaves. Most customers can make do with one set of sheaves for the entire assortment of wires they tension. If a customer checks tension in both 3/4" and 1/4" rope, the should order two sheave sets
