Lincolnshire, IL—Utility supplies: Klein Tools, for professionals since 1857, introduces Splinter Guard Fish and Glow Rods, now with a proprietary protective coating to keep hands free of fiberglass splinters when wire pulling. Raw fiberglass shards become exposed when rods scrap against the sharp edges of electrical boxes, wire trays and threaded rod. The protective coating safeguards hands from these painful fiberglass splinters.
Fish and glow rods are used to install wires above ceilings, in attics, through walls, in crawl spaces, under carpets and raised floors. Extra durable and lightweight, Splinter Guard Rods are available in a variety of lengths and flexibilities. Also, the sections can be threaded together to customize the length needed for the job at hand - no tools needed. In addition, the improved luminescent rods glow two times longer and twice as bright in dark work spaces.
“The first thing most electricians mention when discussing fiberglass fish rods is the painful splinters they get from handling them,” states Marina Wolk, product manager. “The protective coating on the Splinter Guard Rods help protect the hands and allow the electrician to maintain manual dexterity when wire pulling because they don’t need gloves.”
Extra durable and lightweight, Splinter Guard Rods are available in 5/32 inch, 3/16 inch and 14 inch flexibilities and a variety of lengths. Sets include bullet nose and hook attachments to attach and grab wires.
