Try some athletic tape instead, available in sport stores, drug stores and Amazon, ex:
I finally installed my Rep PR-4000 rack but I am running into a serious issue with the lat attachment. The plastic covering on the cable is getting stripped the moment I pull the cable. I am still going through the customer support but there seems to be a design flaw or there is something seriously wrong with my assembly.
First of all, I'd hate to say it but the printed assembly instructions Rep Fitness provides is utter garbage. I was able to assemble it after watching a YouTube video they uploaded.
The design flaw seems to be that the cable travelling above the power rack comes into contact with the rack as it goes down to the double pulley system.
I've uploaded an image to showcase the issue.
Here is the contact I got from the customer service. I hope they don't want me to apply tape to my brand new lat attachment which costs over $400.
>Below are a few pointers to get as long a lifetime on that cable as possible:
(1) Avoid using the machine at any angles other than Lat and Row movements. It is intended only for these exercises, so using it for face pulls or triceps may be the culprit in the shredding situation!
(2) Check to see if the cord is rubbing on the metal in any part of the assembly---if so, you can apply some Black Athletic Tape ($11) or the like to create a buffer.
(3) If you find the cable to not be pulling smoothly or causing friction/catching, we do recommend the use of White Lithium Grease ($5) to lubricate any of our pulley systems.
Please let me know if you have the lat attachment and ran into the same issue. Thank you.
