I installed all of our chartplotter and autopilot cables up throught the pedestal gaurd. Used a bolt with fishing line to fish the line up through the tubes and out the drilled hole. Gromet on the drilled hole. Do not forget to put rubber on the lower edges of gaurd tubes so their is no chafe when the line enters from the engine area into the pedestal gaurd. Also secure the cables so they do not swing or pull once installed.
