"I had been attempting to pass some speaker cables behind some coving without any success using stiff wires etc. I saw this cable access kit and decided to give it a try. It did the job for me perfectly.
My reliability score is a bit random as I've only used the kit once."
"Tried two other brands before these [known brands] and had ends pulling off or connectors snapping, I've had these 6 months now and no breaking or ends pulling off. They do have a slightly larger connector, tiny difference..but nothing that has caused any problems. would recommend, pay the tiny extra and you get what you pay for. Still way cheaper then another super rod but do the job just as well."
"Owned a few of these rod packs over last 10 years or so, they do the job they are supposed to. Can break quite easily though if you bend them too much (like trying to pull around a 90 degree corner in trunking etc)."
"I'm currently wiring Cat6, Coax & Power cables into bedrooms for wall mounted TVs. These rods make routing cable behind the plasterboard very simple. I even attached a endoscope camera to these to locate obstructions. Don't attempt to route cables without these!"
"This kit saved me a lot of time and money in chasing cables through my ceilings. I was able to just use small access holes allowing me to feed through the cable rather than cutting whole sections out. The length provided is more than enough for most of the jobs around the house. it is light weight with enough rigidity to get through most spaces and enough flexibility to get around obstacles.
Since buying this product i have found that i am using it on more jobs such as running HDMI cables through small wall cavities etc.
Overall i would definitely recommend this product."
"For the money, these are great, did some roding under the floorboards for new cables and through various piers, these stood very well, and offer a great bend ratio which is superb for the flexibility you require when roding,"
"Wondered how I was going to thread 2.5 twin and earth under the floor boards without lifting them all. This kit is marvellous, job done in a fraction of the time and so easy. Well made and certainly worth the money!"
"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.
