It is a long, thin nylon, steel or fiberglass filament designed to pass through confined spaces and wall cavities to pull cable guide ropes through pipes and cable runs. Why is it called "fish belt"?

Protect Your Floors, Walls and Ceilings with Phishing Techniques

If you want to run wiring around your home or workplace to add switches, lights, or other electrical components, then you'll obviously need to work around the walls, ceiling, and floor where the wiring is hidden.

Trust us - you'll be glad you did, and your work will be much more enjoyable. It will save you time, energy, and frustration in the long run, and we can all use less of it!
