How to get color coded cable hooks quickly

Time is money.  That’s why it’s important to have stock options when it comes to color coded cable hooks. Most suppliers only offer custom painted data hooks, also known as j-hooks, which have long lead-times. Why not consider a stocked alternative that does the job just as well?

Eaton’s color-id clips are the ideal solution for your next cable pathway, system identification requirement. These color-code sleeves easily install onto BCH series j-hooks at the job-site or onto previously installed B-Line series j-hooks. Better yet, save more time on the job site -  let us pre-assemble your j-hooks and color id clips and ship them directly to your job site.

The clips are manufactured from material that is suitable for use in air handling spaces in accordance with Section 300.22 (c) and (d) of the NEC and manufactured from Underwriters Laboratories (UL) listed material for plenum spaces.
