The cabling's corrugated fiberboard box with plastic inserts ensures lightweight handling. An added benefit of the packaging is a tension control feature that can be adjusted manually for optimum payout during installation. A twist-and-tighten mechanism on the accessible reel hub is convenient for either locking in place during transit or adjusting the tension for the best pulling tension.
