Rope Tolerance Guide

Tolerances are: ±10% for diameters below 5/16 inches (8 mm) inclusive; ±8% for diameters 3/8 – 9/16 inches (10-14 mm) inclusive; ±5% for 5/8 inches (16 mm) diameter and larger.

For Example:

  • 1/4" rope can be .225" to .275" in diameter and still be within tolerance.
  • 1/2" rope can be .46" to .54" in diameter and still be within tolerance.
