"Back against the wall!!!, pulling a fresh aerial cable through the cavity from the loft to ground floor, the new cable was slightly bigger diameter and when pulling through it got stuck and parted, tried tried and tried again to re-feed through to no avail as it was in 2 runs and they were slightly offset. Looked up ways to get around the issue and up popped "cable access kit", click....ordered...picked up, game on.....mission complete. Brilliant bit of kit, cheers Screwfix, heres to you."
"Having got into a jam trying to feed a cable through a boxing section that had some random tightening about a meter in, I nipped out and purchased this little beauty. pushed it down, and found its way through the tight section in no time, got a cable section attached via the eyelet, and pulled it back with no hassle.
"I have owned two sets over the years. Great for pulling cables. First set was made better, than current one. When I lost the additional bits over time using some insulation tape worked well. It tales a very hard angle to snap the rods. When pushing/pulling cables, make sure not to rotate them, or they will come undone and you will loose them in a wall, floor, etc."
"After spending days, adding new lights/switches/AV points throughout my new house, I finally bit the bullet and bought this cable rod kit. My only wish is that I''d bought it sooner. Does exactly what you'd expect, PERFECT."
"Does exactly what it says and just what I needed. I would have had to take up so many floorboards to get the wires from one side of the house to the other. This made it so easy and only had to take up 3. Fantastic. Thank you"
"Been meaning to get some of these for ages, finally got some and they are a very useful tool, used them for threading thin cables through cavity walls, saves a lot of trial and error, also for cabling plastic pipes through floor voids. Well worth the money in time saved."
"These rods are unbelievable. Saved me time and more importantly, lots of mess.
I was routing switch wires behind lath and plaster walls and this kit made it so easy. The flexible end is perfect for dragging back through the switch hole. The hook is also good for catching the end when you see it behind the wall. I would pay £100+ for this product now that I know what it can do.
No gouging of walls required!! If I had to say one negative thing, it would be that I would like to see the ends of the rods luminous so that it is easier to see the ends when they appear at the switch locations.
