J-Hook

Standard J-Hooks for Cable Support– UL Listed

This J-Hook is made of galvanized steel and finished with yellow zinc chromate for to inhibit corrosion. They come in 4 different sizes and can hold up to 300 Cat 5e cables.

It has been specifically designed to provide support for all data comm and low voltage cables.

These include:

  • Cat 5e Ethernet Cable
  • Cat 6 Ethernet Cable
  • Fibre Optic Cable
  • Phone Cable
  • Security Cable
  • Low Voltage Cable
  • Fire Protection Cable

The wide base and even spacing of these J-Hooks makes it ideal for ‘kink’ sensitive cables, such as Ethernet or Fiber Optic which can’t be bent but only curved.

J-Hooks are an innovative solution as the usual ‘cable raceways’ and ‘cable racks’ are not as flexible and easy to use. J-Hooks make it extremely flexible to run and manage cable.

Cable Cage Hooks – Cable Support J-Hook made of Plastic and Metal Composite

Cable Cage Hook

The Cable Cage Hook is Doc’s step up from the Standard J-Hook. It combines the best features of both metal and plastic; providing strength and a slick, no-bur surface.

See below a video explaining J-Hooks, some of their attachments and their application:

J-hook with angle clipStandard J-Hook with a 90 degree angled clip.

This angled clip comes pre-fitted and is used when a standard J-Hook fitting does not work – for example a wood ceiling, beam or such like.

Standard J-Hook with a ‘Bat Wing Clip’.

J-hook with batwing clip

This standard J-Hook includes a spring steel clip also known as a Bat Wing Clip which allows for one to attach the j-hook to 12 gauge wire or threaded rod which is up to 3/8” in diameter.

Standard J-Hook with Knock-on Beam clamp

J-hook with beam clamp

This J-Hook attachment attaches J-Hooks to horizontal flanges. There are two ‘knock-on’ clamps, the ‘HOK-24’ and the ‘HOK-58’; differing in size. The 24 is designed to be knocked onto steel beams 1/8th to ¼ of an inch thick. The 58 is designed to knock onto steel beams / flanges 5/16th to ½ an inch thick.

Though not the most popular of attachments (some rather go with the Pressed Beam Clamp – a manual clamp attached to the J-Hook that you screw and ‘clamp’ onto a steel beam or flange) it is nevertheless ruthlessly useful and fast to apply – a knock or two with a hammer and they are hooked onto the steel beam or flange; holding on to it with its relentless ‘teeth’. Easy application and guaranteed to hold the load.

Standard J-Hook with a Screw-in Press Beam Clamp

J-hook with screw in beam clampThis attachment has the same function as the previous Knock-on Beam Clamp, however it is a bit more flexible and has a screw-in bolt that fastens the attachment to the steel beam or flange.
It is suitable for steel beams/flanges up to ½ an inch thick. This is also available as-is but included with it is a 90 degree angle clip which then allows it to rotate.

Standard J-Hook with an Angle Clip and Powder Actuated Pin for Concrete

J-hook with powder actuated pin for concreteThis is a 90 degree angle clip riveted to the J-Hook with a Bluepoint Powder Actuated Pin for driving the J-Hook attachment into concrete.  Make sure you have the Longshooter Pole and a Powder Actuated Tool for this job.


Standard J-Hook with Eye Coupling Attachment

J-hook with eye couplingThis J-Hook attachment allows for a J-Hook to be connected at the end of ¼ an inch by 20 threaded rod – straightforward and does exactly what it says on the tin.

For 3/8 inch threaded rod, use the 90 Degree Angle Clip attachment (of which hole is threaded specifically). This is available with 2 and 4 inch Standard J-Hooks.

J-hook with rotating clamp

Standard J-Hook with Knock-on Beam Clamp that rotates 360 Degrees

This J-Hook attachment has a Knock-on Beam Clamp (as above and also available in the two aforementioned sizes) but also attached are a pair of ‘doubled-up’ angle clips; allowing for the J-Hook to be rotated fully without restriction while still holding onto the flanges or steel beam.

Other J-Hook attachments

J-hook double spacerThe Double J-Hook spacer

The Double J-Hook spacer (available in two sizes depending on J-Hook size) combines 2 J-Hooks back to back, doubling the holding capacity. It is threaded on one side with ¼ of an inch and the other side 3/8th of an inch threaded rod.
