Cable-pulling tool provides 'elbow' room

Feb. 13, 2009
February 13, 2009 -- The Pull Elbow facilitates smooth pulls around corners and maintains a consistent cable bend radius.

February 13, 2009 -- The Pull Elbow from Creative Cabling Solutions is a removable, reusable tool for pulling cable around corners. The elbow's smooth inner radius allows cable to glide around corners while preserving the cable's integrity by ensuring bends do not violate minimum-bend-radius specifications.

Users secure the cables within the tool during the pull by using cable ties, then cut the ties to release the cables for dressing. By keeping the cabling at ceiling level during the pull, users are spared the hazard and inconvenience of having cable laid out on the floor, the manufacturer explains. This approach also protects the cable from damage and reduces kinks during the installation process.

The Pull Elbow can be mounted or removed in seconds, Creative Cabling Solutions states, with beam clamps, cable ties, screws, vise grips, or even old Romex cable scraps. The tool can also be used to bring cables smoothly up to a building's rafters to begin the pull.

The Pull Elbow is available for $24.95 plus shipping and handling.
