A great start to being able to use a string pot sensor is here. This kit comes with the enclosure where the potentiometer and spring tensioned wire meet. If you would like to download a 3d Printer file to print your own enclosure, check out the String Potentiometer Kit (no housing).
A portion of the proceeds of this sale will be given to Chap Robotics FRC team 2468, who developed and used this idea on their competition robots.
- Three - 4-40 x 0.75" Screws (to seal the enclosure)

Assembled Version using modified FRC Team 2468 3D Print Files
- Retractable String Length: ~27 in.
- Spool Circumference: 2.985 in.
Quality OK. I would have designed mounting base much larger to incorporate 4 screws and made housing thicker for unanticipated abuse.
Got two, installed as steeringangle sensors, they work great and you can't beat the price
