IDEAL Tuff-Rod™ Poles Reduce Time & Hassle of Running Cables In Hard To Access Spaces

The poles can be used with a variety of cable and wire types

SYCAMORE, IL, AUGUST 7, 2013 -- Tuff-Rod™ push/pull poles from IDEAL simplify the task of running cables above ceilings, down walls, under raised floors, or through hard to access voids and cavities. Flexible yet strong, the poles can be used with a variety of cable and wire types, including speaker and telephone wire, twisted pair data cables, fiber, thermostat, coax and general electrical cables to dramatically reduce time on the job.


Made of non-conductive fiberglass rods to protect the installer from electrical shock, IDEAL Tuff-Rods are designed to be threaded together to achieve a maximum length of thirty feet, allowing the installer to create custom rods for longer cable runs.

Three attachment-ends extend the rod's versatility. The J Hook attachment aids in re-positioning wires and re-directing cables, while the Bullet tip is perfect for pushing the rods through wall cavities, under floorboards and similar tight spaces. The Wisp head is specifically designed for working over the top of suspended ceilings where the large head enables the rod to be pushed over the grid work ridges without getting stuck.

In addition to standard white and blue, a pale green "glow in the dark" version is available for contractors working in attics, basements and other dim lit areas. Tuff-Rod repair kits can also be purchased, complete with replacement hardware and quick-drying epoxy for fast, convenient, in-the-field repairs.
