5 Must-Have Fish Tape Accessories

Posted on:November 20, 2020

Fish tapes are some of the most common tools in the electrical trade, being used to run wire and cable through out-of-reach areas on work sites. Klein Tools has always had a wide range of fish tape options, and continues to expand its variety, including the most recent addition, the glow fish tape. While the fish tapes do the bulk of the work in running the wire and cable, having the right accessories for the job  can make a big difference. These products can help make fishing wire more efficient and ultimately make the job you’re doing even easier. Today we’re looking at some of the top fish tape accessories offered by Klein Tools, and how they can help you out with your wire and cable pulling jobs.

This flexible fish tape leader is for use with 1/8 -inch wide steel fish tapes and makes fishing through tight bends quicker and easier. It has a rustproof inner steel core wrapped with a spiral cover for excellent flexibility, and the heavy-duty construction is strength rated up to 250 pulling pounds.

The multi-function ratcheting tool cuts and stripes tapes and crimps on new attachments. The set also contains multiple new eyelets that meet or exceed original factory pulling strength requirements. Speaking of eyelets…

Steel Fish Tape Swivel Eyelet
For us with 1/8-inch wide steel fish tapes, this eyelet features a swivel head design that helps prevent kinks and allows smoother, easier fishing in tight turns.
