Cable Comb Cable Dresser, Bundler, Organizing Tool for Data/Network Cables (Each)

The Cable Comb substantially lowers labour time in any application where a multitude of single cables must be bundled neatly for an appearing professional installation.

This innovative two-piece tool enables installers to quickly and efficiently straighten, organize, and lash separate cables into multiple cable bundles with ease.

How this works:

The Cable Comb™ consists of a blue internal hub and a yellow outer collar. The inner is intended to interlock with the outside collar to allow installers to conveniently straighten, organize, and fasten single cables into professional appearing cable bundles.

The cables can be loaded or removed from the tool at any point within the run due to the inner hub's open slots and the split opening of the outer collar.

  • 1. Organize your cables for tangle-free bundling.
  • 2. Remove the blue hub from the yellow outside collar of the Cable Comb. Keep the blue hub perpendicular to your cables - make sure the rounded finger pull of the pie-shaped protrusion is facing away from the direction you'll be pulling in.
  • 3. Place the individual cables in the blue hub's various slots on the Cable Comb. Do not oppress a space with cables. The cables in each slot must remain movable after you re-attach the outer collar.
  • 4. Once you have loaded the Comb's blue hub cables, slip the yellow collar over the wires, behind the blue hub.
  • 5. Rotate the collar to align the pie-shaped protrusion of the hub to the opening on the collar. Slide the collar onto the hub. (If the fit is too tight, it means one or more of your slots is overloaded. Remove the collar, redistribute your cables in the hub, then put the collar back on and test the fit again.)
  • 6. Begin sliding the assembled Cable Comb (hub + collar) down the length of your cables. The cables emerge from the comb in a smooth, organized bundle.
  • 7. Wrap the combed bundle with Velcro, tie wrap, or equivalent cable lash every 2 to 3 feet as desired to keep the wires organized and together. Continue the combing process to provide bundle lengths as required for the installation.
  • 8. If necessary, disengage the blue hub's yellow collar to unload individual cables that need to be terminated or directed elsewhere. Slip the yellow collar back onto the blue hub to continue combing.
  • 9. To extract the Cable Comb, slide the yellow collar backwards, off the blue hub, and remove it from your cable bundle. Unload remaining cables from the blue hub. If the wires aren't terminated, the Cable Comb may also be slid entirely off the remaining cables' end to remove the tool as a mated assembly.
  • 10. Keep the inner blue hub mated with the yellow outer collar during storage to protect the tool's slots and face from potential damage.

Q: What is the maximum UTP CAT 6 cables allowed in a bundle?

A: There is no limit to the number of cat5e & cat6 cables that you can bundle to dress them neatly. Within cabinet spaces, its advisable to bundle in the quantity of cables that can be terminated on to one patch panel, in case access is required for maintenance or replacement at a later date. That would suggest a maximum bundle size of either 12 or 24 cables dependant upon the patch panel style.
