exact replacement, easy to install. $30 strikes me as a bit dear for this simple cable.

This is a terrible design. This is the second time I have had to replace this part. The S-shaped metal piece that fits in the handle breaks. It doesn't work the way it was designed, so I end up trying to come up with work-around solutions.

from NW MFG: Sorry to hear you had issues with the lanyard cable. We have about 20k machines in the field and only ship out a small number of these cables annually. This said, we prefer a '0' failure rate and are looking to remove this cable in future model releases.
I looked through your records and could not find a purchase of a Powertow machine. Since it looks like this might have been a 2nd-hand machine, please check the following:
1) Review this alignment guide - alignment is the #1 breaker of cables http://www.powertow.com/Aircraft-Adaptor-Alignment-Guide_ep_58.html
2) check hole in clamping handle to make sure it has no burrs or corrosion. A little bit of grease may go a long way to prevent future breaks.
3) you are always welcome to call us to discuss both new and used machines.
Thank you for your feedback

I agree with the other users who had issues with the s hook. It is made of poor quality medal and is not sturdy enough for long service. Use will wear a grove in the s hook and soon it will break and slide out of the hole in the handle. $30.00 for a little cable with a couple of simple parts plus $11.00 shipping a bit much. Could you make the S hook a separate part. Anyone could go to their local hardware and get the material and make the whole cable assembly. I did and was ready to assemble but the weather turned bad and I could not fly and your part showed up which I had ordered. I will keep my parts for future use. Rest of the machine is great.
