Using Swivel To Pull Jetline

Using Swivel To Pull Jetline

Using Swivel To Pull Jetline

I have heard of people using a fishing swivel to pull a jetline behind there cable so the jetline wouldn't get tangled does anyone know how and where they tie the swivel on? This would help out a lot since I have a big job starting pulling through cable tray.

RE: Using Swivel To Pull Jetline

This idea might stop the string from twisting, but I doubt it will stop it twisting around the cables. If you do figure it out and have some success please let us all know how you did it in the end!

RE: Using Swivel To Pull Jetline

Yeah it will still get twisted in the cable but I have heard using a swivel you get a lot more pulls b/c it don't twist as bad.

RE: Using Swivel To Pull Jetline

Just run your groups of cable and when it wont pull easily anymore (usually 3 to 4 groups), run a new jet line.

Sometimes faster is not better.

Cutting corners when installing expensive cable can get.....well....expensive.

RE: Using Swivel To Pull Jetline

I'm totally with lowvolter on this one. The mistake a lot make (and I have, too) is to keep pulling using same path/drag. Start a different drag and path. Even if you need to put another row of J-hooks, depending on where you are doing this (above ceiling/raised floor).
