How Do I Set-up the CH5600P?
This exploded view diagram
shows key components and
features of the SLT top mount
control. The SLT can be
conﬁgured as throttle/shift,
throttle/throttle, or shift/shift.
This control is designed to
work well with virtually any
3300/33C type universal cable.

CH5600 pages earlier in this
Each SLT can be conﬁgured for Throttle
and Shift, Twin Throttle or Twin Shift,
simply by screwing in the appropriate
throttle stops, detents and knobs that
come with the control. Shift cables must
always be connected to the direct drive
arm, regardless of which control station.
The SLT can be used in Single or Twin
Station applications. Dual station
setups must only utilize the Self-
Locking feature, shift detents and
throttle stops for throttle at the station
whose cables are directly connected
to the engine. All cables from the
“master” control to the other station(s)
must be connected to the direct drive
arms of secondary control(s), which
must not have active throttle friction or
shift detents. Multiple stations require
that the controls be hooked in series if
the Self-Locking feature is used.
NOTE: The SLT feature should only be used for
throttle. (Gear shift cable needs free movement
at the lever to properly engage the transmission
detent.) The SLT feature should only be used on
the station-to-engine (“master”) control. (Cables
running from control to control must be able to
move freely at all times.)
Inside the CH5600P:
NOTE: This is the only twin station mechanical control that
allows you to take full advantage of
cables’ superior performance characteristcs. You can use
cables without requiring a
cable brake or other device to limit unwanted lever creep.
Cable brakes and similar devices tend to denigrate cable
performance and degrade the feel of the control when the
levers are moved.
