The LoosCo Stretch Calculator is the latest in the Loos Mechanicals line of mobile applications designed to assist the wire rope and aircraft cable professional in the field. The application provides real time wire rope and aircraft cable elastic stretch estimates based on construction, diameter, length and load inputs provide by the user. Calculate the estimated stretch of your assembly or sling right in the palm of your hand.
The LoosCo Stretch Calculator application is based on the popular download available on, and is available for both the iPhone and iPad. The calculator provides the following features:
•Elastic Stretch estimates for 1x7, 1x19, 7x7, 7x19, 6x19, 6x37 Constructions
•Elastic Stretch estimates for Stainless and Galvanized Steel
•Elastic Stretch estimates for Cable Diameters 1/64” to 1-1/4”

This calculator only provides values for the elastic stretch of your aircraft cable or wire rope. Elastic stretch is the actual physical elongation of the individual wires under load.

This calculator does not take into account Structural Stretch, or the lengthening of the lay in the construction of cable or wire rope as the individual wires adjust under load. Structural Stretch in Loos & Co., Inc. products is less than 1% of the total cable length.
This form of stretch can be completely removed by applying a cable or wire rope pre-stretching operation prior to shipment.
