B-Line series cable hook for data, communication and low voltage cable pathways

Mar 1, 2021, 00:05 AM by Eaton’s B-Line Series

Eaton’s B-Line series cable hooks help preserve the integrity of your pathway and connections. The 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.

The 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.

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

How to get color-coded cable hooks quickly 
Most suppliers only offer custom painted data hooks, also known as j-hooks, which have long lead-times. Eaton’s color-id clips are in stock and ready to use in new construction or retrofit applications to help maintain an easily identifiable cable pathway. 

The color-code ID sleeves easily install onto B-Line series BCH series j-hooks on the jobsite or can be ordered pre-installed on B-Line series j-hooks. 

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.
