Does the job

"Good and strong yet able to follow openings. It threaded my data cables through fibre filled cavity after some wiggles.
Didn't catch fish though"

Strong product with limits
09-May-2013
By
, Huddersfield
"Very strong tape with good reel/holder. The end of the tape is much bigger than previous ones I've had though and would be difficult for use in conduit, particularly if there are already cables in it. Better for more open areas. I bought the Nylon version (75807) for use in conduit."

Metal is better
09-Sep-2012
By
, Edinburgh
"I've used fibreglass cable rods which splintered when bent and plastic cable pullers which tangled up and caught in conduit.
Moving to a metal draw tape has a few advantages
- Its flat so can be directed in a wall
- It has enough strength to push it (I've even been able to break through expanding foam in walls)
- It seems to glide more smoothly over obstacles and in conduit
- You sont have the length of a rod to contend with so it can be used upwards from skirting
The only point to note is to tape the empty end up before pushing it in a wall to make sure it doesn't get caught on objects
This model seems to do the job. If I bought another I'd possibly look for one with a bigger handle (the black part) to make winding easier.
The only other concern is that the hook part is very soft and has misshapen. I'm not sure how long it will last but if it does break, I'm sure another could be bent with a blow torch and pliers."

"Worked very well to start with and it does the job. Have had a little trouble winding in the tape on a couple of occasions, but its a tidy piece of kit."

Good Tip with this product
16-Feb-2010
By
, Liverpool
"I would like to advise all users of this tool to ensure that they tape up the hook, I recently bought one, and successfully used it on two runs, but when it came to a run with alarm cable under the floorboards, it caught the cable and it now lives under there!
The trick is to use either I piece of rubber piping that you can put over the hook and a little electrical tape to keep in place.
If you have enough space to use rods then use them as this cable can end up coiling itself in any spot. Due to it being constantly coiled up in the reel!"
