"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.
"Paid for themselves first time out. No more endless hours of mucking about with wire coat hangers! Flexible tip great for finding the hole that is not quite square on. Have applied quite a lot of pulling force to these and they stand up to it well."
"I should have bought some of these years ago. Only had a couple of chances to use them so far, but WOW! All those years of trying to force various objects through holes, bits of bent wire, flexible cable, even a plastic device designed for the job, but strangely designed with a permanent curl in it have been a total pain. Whereas this - superb. So easy to use. The rods are just the right amount of flexibility versus rigidity. I can't see what a more expensive set would give you. Especially if its not your day to day tool. For £20 these pay for themselves the first time you use them. Instead of spending half an hour fiddling trying to find the end of a wire, you can hook the clearly visible blue pole in 30 seconds."
