I need to pull pre-terminated multi-fiber cable through a conduit. How can I do this without damaging the connectors?

Bruno's Answer

Attach a pulling eye to the Aramid Yarn and the strength member within the cable. The pulling eye has netting that will cushion and protect the connectors. The eye also has a swivel that prevents the cable from twisting as you pull it through the conduit. Since you are pulling multiple fibers, you'll want to stagger the connectors by about 1/2 inch so that they'll fit within the diameter of the conduit.
