Would you give the measurements and how did you attach the cable to the spring?

Thanks

I cut the angle end off and extended it to the end with a new top rail.I used a chain link fence post and cut about 6-8 inches off a 6 ft corner post.The spring is a 120 lb garage door spring.I used a smash link to attach it to a eye bolt.The cable end attaches to the other end with a smash link also.I have more pics if you need them.

did you bolt the fence post down with the eye bolts? The front eye bolt is used for a guide or could you have just used a regular bolt. I really like the pulley on the ramp that was a good idea.

Thanks for answering

The back is held on with the eye bolt the end the cable comes out I had to remove the eye bolt and use a bolt to allow extra travel.The pulley doubled the spring power and really made a big difference.I spent around 60-70 dollars for the build.
