Introducing the comprehensive range of products for Cable Installation, Support and Protection from Slingco. Slingco has dedication to precision engineering. Each product is meticulously crafted to exacting standards, ensuring unparalleled performance in even the most demanding environments. Whether it’s a high-tension cable or a complex network installation.

Cable pulling Stockings – Each cable stocking is expertly engineered to offer a reliable solution for the installation of conductor cables. There is a full range of lightweight, medium and heavy duty stockings available. They’re ideal for both ‘new and old’ cable and can be used with swivel links for reduced torque build up.

Swivels Swivels are designed for use in stringing high tension wires for electrical transmission and distribution. They are important for pulling when the lines develop torsion during the installation. This torsion must be released. Use of a swivel will release torque and prevent it from reaching dangerous levels, which can cause damage to the cable or grip.

Slingco also offers a ‘bull nose’ style swivel designed for underground and overhead applications.

All swivels are stringently quality tested and inspected to ensure optimum performance and reliability.

Pole Puller – The Slingco pole puller is a must have to comply with today’s safe working practices, reducing the potential for boom damage and greatly reducing the potential of personal injury. The Slingco Deluxe Pole Puller system includes the pole puller pad and back plate weldment. The pole puller pad has studs which keep the base plate in the optimum position when pulling poles. The back plate weldment has angled teeth to increase hold on the pole during extraction
