I have a 20 meter steel cable fixed between a joist under my balcony at one end and a wooden post at the other end of garden. A pulley and handle roll on the cable as a flying fox or zip line. I need to tighten or tension the cable. It's more difficult than it sounds! Carpenter had trouble. Will upload pictures soon

Hi. See picture I added.
I have done this with nylon rope before, I think I could do it with this, how have you secured the cable at each end?
