 Pulling Cable
What are some industry tricks to pulling multiple utp runs in a ceiling space. If you have several drop off points is it best to pull groups then pull one at a time or is there a specific way to do it?

Hi, Randy!

Here is a short overview of procedure of pulling UTP cables in open ceilings:

1) Route the pull string through the ceiling area
2) Attach the string to the cable (tape the pull string to the lead end of the cable)
3) Lift the cables and place them in the cable supports
4) Pull cables carefully avoiding snags and sharp objects

Best regards
