The Push Pole, also known as a Gopher Pole, is an immense time-saver
for overhead cabling jobs with the ability to push cables across large gaps and distances. Simply extend the lightweight, non-conductive, telescoping pole across ceiling tiles with a pull-string attached to it and cover up 22 feet of distance in just one extension. The pole features locking buttons so it won’t collapse if it runs into a hard surface in the ceiling; it also has a hook on the far end of the pole for grabbing cables that are out of reach as well as a loop on either end of the pole for attaching a pull string. The Push Pole is great for large or small jobs running 25 pair feeder cable, cat5e, cat6, cat6a, or coaxial cable.

Telescopes from 4' to 22' in a matter of seconds. Easy to handle in tight spots. No loose parts to fit together. Can push/pull wires over long spans, in suspended ceilings, sub-floors, crawl spaces, and attics. Constructed of durable, non-conductive fiberglass. Sturdy and lightweight. Highly visible color (white). Positive lock system (won’t inadvertently collapse).
