    Has anyone got a Bodymax CF475 with the lat attachment? I have just bought one. Took me ages to assemble it, and I'm not sure if one of my pieces is wrong.

    Basically where you screw the end of the wire into the moving thing where the weight plates go, I'm not sure if the bolt is meant to come out the other end, and then you put the nut on the other end. My bolt (the one that came attached to the wire and the only one with a hole through the middle of it - so I am using the correct one) doesn't come out the other end, so I'm left with the bolt that also came attached to the same wire, and got nowhere to put it.

    Here's some pictures:


    ^ You can clearly see that the bolt isn't big enough to go all the way through, so wtf is the nut for which is meant to go on the end. So basicaly, what you see coming out of the end of the nut is supposed to hold all the weight (think it was 150kg). No chance.


    ^ Here you go see the bolt has been screwed all the way in, and doesn't come out the other end


    ^ Here's another one, screwed all the way in.


    ^ So basically, the thing on the end of the wire (above) is taking ALL of the weight, so if the end pops off the wire is just going to come all the way out through the hole down the middle of the bolt. Doesn't seem right, unless the little thing on the end is really really strong.

    I'm just not sure wtf is going on. There is a hole all the way through, which leads me to believe I should be screwing all the way through, and especially since I have a nut left over.

    So, if anybody has one of these, I would love you to let me know how yours was set up.
