Introducing Fish n' Pull, the world's simplest and fastest way to fish wire, cables, and tubing through walls, ceilings and even floors! The Fish n' Pull kit provides the right tool to get the job done fast, and insulation is no longer a problem; the Magnetic Fish tunnels right under it. Insert the Magnetic Fish into the wall, ceiling, or floor space, and using the 2-inch MagRing, pull it to your exit location. You now have a strong pull cord to attach to whatever it is need to run. With the time you save, this innovative tool plays for itself on the first use!
Frequently Asked Questions
How strong are the magnets in the Fish n’ Pull and MagRing?
The Fish n’ Pull has a Neodymium magnet that has a 40-pound pull force, and the 2-inch MagRing has a Neodymium magnet that has a 200-pound pull force.
Will the Fish n’ Pull work on insulated walls?
Yes. When working on insulated walls, ceilings, or floors, push the insulation back when inserting the Magnetic Fish to position it in front of the insulation and secure it tightly against the inside surface with the MagRing. The Fish n’ Pull will tunnel right under the insulation when pulled with the MagRing. Note: For best results, minimize the drag on the red cord to the magnetic fish by positioning the cord so it will feed naturally into the opening.
Is it OK to use the Fish n’ Pull on steel stud walls?
Yes. The Fish n’ Pull works with all types of wall, ceiling, and floor construction. The Magnetic Fish is magnetic and will attract to any steel surface, so on steel-framed construction, just compress the plastic tube guide against the Magnetic Fish to push it past the top plate and, using the MagRing, pull it to your desired location. If the Magnetic Fish sticks to the side of a vertical steel wall stud, just pull it free and use the MagRing to keep it clear of any steel framing or electrical boxes.
When using the MagRing to guide the Fish n’ Pull, will it scratch a surface?
When used as directed, the MagRing should not scratch most surfaces. On sensitive surfaces, attach the surface protection cap included in the kit on the MagRing face and this will reduce the possibility of scratching. Note: Using the protective cap decreases the magnetic attraction and will reduce the pulling force slightly. So when using the cap, slow down the pulling speed and also ensure that the drag on the red cord is minimized as mentioned above.
Will the magnets harm any electronics?
When using the Fish n’ Pull and MagRing to run a pull string for wiring in a home or office, care should be taken to avoid close contact with sensitive electronic devices and any live network cables. When transporting or storing the Fish n’ Pull kit, it is recommended that the protective cap be kept on the MagRing and separated from these devices because it is never a good idea to place electronics or a laptop directly on top of very strong magnets.
Where are the Fish n’ Pull kits made?
We are proud to say that the Fish n’ Pull kits were designed, engineered, and are assembled in America, in Silicon Valley, San Jose, California.
