Replacement dobby cable (or rigid wire) assembly. The Dobby Cable is the cable or wire that runs through the Compu-Dobby and has a little metal crimp (also known as a Nico or swage) in the middle which catches on the slide plate and lifts your harnesses.
Please note that if you have a Compu-Dobby I, Compu-Dobby II or a Mechanical Dobby, you will need to rent, purchase or have a Crimp Compression Tool (Nico Tool) to crimp and install the little metal nico fittings. Please note that tool rental is for Domestic US customers only. If you are located outside the United States and need a Nico Tool, you can purchase one from us.
If you have a Compu-Dobby III, II+ or IV, you do not need a Nico Tool to install the new cable.

Please specify which number harnesses the cable(s) is for, your loom serial number and which dobby type.
