Q: Un-sure on the overall length of cable?
Answer: The overall length is not important, as this is loose in underneath/inside recliner sofa, the important part is 1. the amount of exposed inner cable from outer case, 2. the type of frame fixing, long plug, round plug or nuts(as photos on our categories) 3. if you have a spring around the exposed cable part.

Answer: You will need to remove the broken cable from handle and measure the amount of exposed inner cable from outer case, if parts are frayed and/or missing from a breaking off part(s), you can slide out the inner cable out from case and measure both parts and the excess amount is the approx length to compare to the photos in category.
