It's almost a rite of passage for young or new employees entering the custom electronics industry: pulling wire.
A newly announced alliance between Klein Tools and Super Rod will make that rite of passage much easier than it used to be. The two companies' partnership will bring the U.K. tool company's product to the U.S. and Canada, and its wire pulling solutions will augment Klein's array of custom installation tools and accessories.
“Klein Tools is always creating and searching for the highest quality tools available for our customers,” says Mark Klein, president of Klein Tools. “By partnering with Super Rod we are able to complement our current low voltage wire pulling line with Super Rod innovations that already have a strong track record on the jobsite in the U.K. We're confident that this line expansion will fill an existing need in our product catalog and that our customers will immediately see the value in them.”
The Super Rod Series of products includes:
- WIRESPANNERplus Telescopic 18-foot pole: Klein says this product is designed to allow a user to retrieve cables from a distance. The product features a hook attachment for the pulling of multiple cables, and it retracts to a size of 32 inches for storage.
- Magnetic Wire Pulling System: Described as a leader-pull design, Klein says this product allows users to pull cable behind finished walls and other enclosed spaces.
- Polymer Fish Rod Set with Glow-in-the-Dark Leaders: Klein says this set features four non-conductive rods of varying flexibility to enable users to work around electrically sensitive areas.
