Home Tools & Cases Wire Installation Fish Tape
What's fish tape? It's not really tape. It doesn't have much to do with fish. So what is it? It's a thin length of nylon, steel or fiberglass wire designed to be fed through confined spaces and wall cavities, to pull the guide string of cables through pipes and cable runs. Why is it called "fish tape"? Well, apparently you have to "fish" the tape through the run first before running the cables. Yeah, it could probably use a better name...
We have a wide selection of fish tape to aid your cable puller, from top brands like Greenlee, IDEAL and Klein Tools. Here's where you'll also find fish tape repair accessories, and other fishing and pulling aids, such as tracers and conduit measuring tape.
