 cat 5 supports
is there a code restricting the use of (caddy) bridle rings for supporting cat 5 cable?i know they shouldn`t be used when supporting a large bundle of cable, because of weight pressing down on the lower cables causing pinching and kinks.but in a case of say 15 cables or less would bridle rings be ok? thank you

Hi, Steve!

You may use bridle rings if you do not exceed the manufacturers' recommendations for supported cable quantity and if those rings are suited for data Cat5 cables.

Best regards
