How to prevent cable bending, tearing and kinking during cable pulls

Don’t compromise your pathway and cable connections by using just any data hook for your data application, consider Eaton's B-Line series cable hooks.

Preserve the integrity of your pathway and connections by using Eaton’s extensive line of j-hook fasteners.

Eaton’s B-Line series cable hooks, also known as j-hooks, are designed to help reduce cable bends, tears and kinks when loading or pulling cables 5, 5e, 6 and 6a fiber optic, innerduct and low voltage wires.

Our cable hooks feature a recessed fastener that keeps the mounting fastener out of the path of the wire loading area. This greatly reduces the risk of the shielding catching on the fastener when loading, avoiding potential cable damage.

We offer a variety of options to meet your cable pathway requirements – including single-sided, double-sided, and multi-tiered cable hook options (cable retainers included).  

Plus, we offer multiple fasteners, attachments and supports for various mounting applications.

Eaton's B-Line series J-hook Color ID clip

How to get color-coded cable hooks quickly 

Time is money. That’s why it’s important to have stock options when it comes to color-coded cable hooks.   

Most suppliers only offer custom painted data hooks, also known as j-hooks, which have long lead-times.

Why not consider a stocked alternative that does the job just as well?

Eaton’s color-id clips are the ideal solution for your next cable pathway system identification requirement.

These color-code sleeves easily install onto BCH series j-hooks at the job-site or onto previously installed B-Line series j-hooks.  

Better yet, save more time on the job site - let us pre-assemble your j-hooks and color id clips and ship them directly to your job site.

The clips are manufactured from material that is suitable for use in air handling spaces in accordance with Section 300.22 (c) and (d) of the NEC and manufactured from Underwriters Laboratories (UL) listed material for plenum spaces.
