How to Replace a Net Cable

If you find yourself in the unenviable position of having a broken net cable, it is not always necessary to purchase a new net!  If your net has seen better days, it might be worth the investment in a new one.  But, if you feel your net still has life left in it, you have the option of replacing the cable rather than the whole net.

Assuming your cable has broken on an end near the post, you can replace the cable using a few easy steps:

  • Lay out the new cable as straight and flat as possible.
  • Tape the new cable to end of the old cable as securely as possible – you may need to pinch the end of the cable as small as possible under the tape to ensure it goes through the headband easily.
  • If you are working alone, you may need to secure one end of the net to the post with twine to gain leverage.
  • Pull the cable through the net until the taped portion is safely out on the other side.
  • Dispose of the old cable and tape and enjoy your functioning net!

If you would like a visual representation of these steps, please watch this video below for the full tutorial!

    I am trying to locate the company from whom we purchased tennis screen in Jan or Feb of 2017. We are Bella Terra Community of Estero Fl, or it might have been under the name of the management company, Alliant.

    Please let me know.
