GREENLEE® 7/8” or 1-11/32” Metal Stud Hole Punches provide professional installers and contractors with a simple-to-use, lightweight solution for creating a cable/conduit pass-through in standard 20 gauge steel studs. The head is constructed from light weight, yet strong aluminum, and then combined with an ergonomically friendly contoured handle. Allowing most operators to comfortably use the metal stud punch without the worry of excessive fatigue during larger applications. When combined with GREENLEE® plastic bushings, cabling and conduit become protected from the sharp exposed metal edges, promoting longer life and eliminate snags for allowing smoother and easier pulls.
