Proper Fiber Optic Cable Pulling Tools are essential for any large-scale bulk Ethernet or fiber installation. Having the correct tools is essential for a safe and efficient installation. The pulling rope utilized must be dry, clean, and free of damage. It must be selected according to the appropriate specifications for pulling tension, cable gauge, and length of the run.
Our Recommendation and Additional Information
Heavy duty applications often necessitate Cable Pulling Tools like the Composite Double Braid Pulling Rope. This high tensile strength, low stretch double braided Cable Pulling Rope has factory spliced pulling eyes at each end. Low stretch with a high tensile strength enables this product to be an ideal pulling force; the low stretching tendency makes it safe for cable installers as it won’t snap back and injure anyone in the event of an accident.
The minimum break strength of this Cable Pulling Rope varies depending on diameter size; nevertheless, Pulling Rope generally ranges from 5,000 pounds per foot to as much as 42,000 pounds per foot. The Composite Double Braid Pulling Rope is available in diameters ranging from 3/8” to up to 1.”
Cable Installation Tools like Fishing Rods are also recommended for pulling wire and cable through insulated walls and in hard to reach areas. The ¼” Fiberfish “FourPack” Wire Fishing Rods are Cable Pulling Tools, which can be screwed together to provide the necessary reach. These Cable Pulling Tools are flexible enough for working inside insulated walls, yet stiff enough for drop ceilings.

The 5/16” Fibersnake Rod, Fiberglass Core w/ Plastic Coating is convenient for pulling fishline and rope. It is jacketed with a plastic coating for superior durability and flexibility.
