Re: Stop cable
This looks like a Teleflex cable so there should be a small locknut behind the T handle. Use a 5/16" wrench and undo this locknut and then the handle should unscrew with ease.
It makes sense that it'd be a threaded fitting and there is indeed a locknut which is easily undone, but when I go to 'unscrew' the handle I'm only twisting the internal cable.
So it should just unscrew?? I can't see any set screws or any other tricks.. that's why I'm asking. I was worried that it might have some fancy molded end and the last thing I want to do is break the handle. I'll try some WD-40 and have another go..
