I need a source for communication cabling J-hooks. I get a blank stare from the local electrical distributors. It's just a heavy wire hook to keep the cabling up out of harms way above the suspended ceiling.

Who makes these things???

TIA

There are many different companies that make these. One is by Arlington, its called "The Loop". Another is the "Cable Cat". I am ooking right at them now in a mailer from a distributor. If I was a little more computer literate I would scan the picture and send it to you but.....

Scott,

Thanks for the fast response. I spent some time looking online and found that Caddy also makes them. The local distributor carries Caddy and should be able to get them.

I HATE it when I have to educate wholesalers about their own product lines. [Linked Image]

Been training and retraining them for years. The guys just scatter when I come through the door with a Square D Digest in my hand. I have to fill out the order info to get any Teleemechanique contactors, the little compact stuff. They just don't have a clue.

Try http://www.phonegeeks.com/drivrinforat.html.

Never bought anything from these guys, so I don't know how they are to deal with.
They call them "drive rings"

Uhm, er, the formal 'old bastard' term for these is bridle rings.

Here is an example of two threaded versions. http://www.erico.com/erico_public/pdf/Engineering/Fixing/Electrical/brringovr.pdf

There is also a nail-type version.

Gee I feel old.

Bjarney,

A drive ring and a bridle ring are two different things.

Any old phone installer could tell you that you used bridle rings in locations lower than 6-7 feet, because a bridle ring does not have the projecting pin that the drive ring has.
