Here at GMP Tools, we offer a variety of different cable lashing machines. Each lasher has specific features and unique modifications that provide today’s telecom installers the best possible equipment to complete any cable lashing job effectively and efficiently. Our cable lashers include:

Today, we’re taking a closer look one of the best in our cable lasher family: The Apollo. We’re currently in a stocking period for this lasher and many others so there’s no better time to pick up one for your next job. 

What makes the Apollo different, you may ask? For starters, this is not just any spinner; it’s a GMP lasher! No other lasher or cable spinner can deliver such high-quality results with as little effort.

The entire list of Apollo features and benefits can be found on our website, here.

We want every technician to be getting the most out of their Apollo, so in this blog we’re going to show you exactly how to load your Apollo Cable Lasher so that you can start using it right away.


Loading the Apollo Cable lasher correctly is crucial for an effective and durable lashing procedure. This video will show you step by step how to load cable into the lasher.

Follow the same loading procedure on the opposite side of the lasher for the second coil.  

Each Apollo lasher also includes a 6 ft. (2 m) towing bridle and a rugged, weather-tight storage chest to securely protect your lasher investment while it’s not in use.

The Apollo and every GMP lasher is fully serviceable to “good-as-new” specifications at our factory and at factory-trained service locations around the globe.
