Sure, Actually was going to make a video with it moving between the zip ties before I put some permanent clamps on. My explanation could have been lacking, but there's nothing to be skeptical about. A cut cable will NEVER push anything with any force and certainly not enough to lift up a hihat, shift a bike or whatever. That's where the spring between the hithats comes in. It turns both the open and close into a pull action. Your foot pulls it closed and the spring between the cymbals pulls on the cable when it pushes the cymbals open.
I'll show you soon as I get the HD video up. You should be able to see how it works.
