HellermannTyton has announced the Dual Arrowhead Sling Strap, an eight-inch nylon strap resembling a cable tie with arrowhead fasteners on each end designed for insertion into dual quarter-inch holes in the work surface. The result is a loop that securely hangs cable, wire and conduit without a binding force.
“This product was originally developed as a solar PV application – for suspending cable beneath solar panels – and we realized other applications could benefit,” said HellermannTyton product manager Missy DeBord. “When installing long runs of cable, installers typically trim the tail off hundreds or thousands of cable ties. Sling Strap eliminates cutting, saving time and freeing crews of having to hold onto a tool.”
According to DeBord, the Dual Arrowhead Sling Strap also streamlines maintenance. “If a cable needs to be replaced, it can be quickly removed and a new one inserted without cutting and replacing ties.”
Sling Strap has a 50-pound extraction force rating and is made of Polyamide 12 (PA12), a material known for resistance to UV, chemical and moisture exposure.
