Cable Tongue is the new quick and easy way to run cables through
interior walls and through awkward spaces. The Tongue is the
only flat, plastic, flexible cable pulling tool that has the
ability to slide through insulation filled walls. What also
makes the tongue so useful is its ability to be bent into a
shape. A simple bend at the end of the tongue will allow the
tongue to pop out of small exit holes. When you have pulled the
cables through, you can simply bend the tongue back into shape.
How to use:
When you receive your new Cable Tongue, it will be tightly
coiled for shipping. Some people prefer to keep the tongue like
this for storage in a tool bag but most professionals choose to
coil the Tongue back on itself in a large loop and tape. This
will mean the tongue is still coiled but is more manageable.
Another option for Cable Tongue storage is in a van roof tube.
This keeps the tongue completely straight.
Example of use: If the Tongue is being used to pull cables
through a partition wall (insulation filled plaster board wall
with vertical braces), then you will need a hole where the
Tongue will enter the wall and an exit hole. Simply push the
Tongue into the entry hole and the Tongue will slide past any
insulation or obstructions in the wall due to its unique smooth,
flat shape. Once the Tongue has exposed itself at the exit hole,
you will now need to tape your cables onto the rear of the
Tongue. You can now pull your cables through making sure that
you guide the cables through smoothly eliminating any damaged
