Commonly referred to as a “4th Hand,” the Park Tool Cable Stretcher pulls cables tight for adjustment of derailleurs and brakes. It features one-hand operation with a thumb lock to hold the cable tight while your hand is freed up to tighten bolts and nuts. A must-have for any shop, home, or professional.
This is one of those tools that by many is considered not something that is really required to work on the cable system on bikes, and I would agree with that however having it around ready to use does make life a little bit easier. Holds the cable nice and tight with no slippage and when engaging the handle lock will allow you to have both hands free. Like I said, not a tool that you must have but I am sure glad that I got one ! !
I purchased this product for home / small shop use. Although it is expensive, it is a timesaver that simplifies working with brake or shift cables requiring tension for proper setup. The cost is worth the time and effort saved.
PROS: Good Grip, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Good Quality
As with most Park Tools, the 4th hand comes at a little bit of a premium, but I decided to splurge. A few comments:
- The ratchet system is great, it will easily hold your cable and hang without intervention so you can use both your hands for other tasks - The grips have a really nice 'stubbled' texture to them, which make them easy to manipulate even with only one hand (though I'm interested to see if they pick up grime more easily) - Top notch machining/manufacturing, as you'd expect from Park Tool
