The Splinter Guard Fish and Glow Rods from Klein Tools have a proprietary protective coating “to keep hands free of fiberglass splinters when wire pulling,” Klein says. “Raw fiberglass shards become exposed when rods scrape against the sharp edges of electrical boxes, wire trays and threaded rod. The protective coating safeguards hands from these painful fiberglass splinters.”
The rods are available in a variety of lengths and flexibilities; sections can be threaded together, tool-free, to customize the length needed for a particular pull. The rods are luminescent, glowing in dark work spaces such as above ceilings, through walls and under raised floors.
Klein Tools describes the rods as durable and lightweight; they are available in 5/32-inch, 3/16-inch, and 1/4-inch flexibilities. Sets include bullet-nose and hook attachments.
