Setting Jump Rope Length

I just recently purchased a Revolution Rx jump rope from Again Faster and need to cut the ginormous cable it came with but I've always just eyeballed it in the past. I found this video explaining the measuring points. I need to make a trip to the store today to buy some wirecutters/crimpers.
