Yes we carry hook and loop and no it’s not Velcro! You can check out the video below put out by Velcro that explains it with a good laugh! Now let’s talk about our hook and loop. We offer it it black, blue and white in both 1/2″ and 3/4″ widths. The rolls are 75′ in length. The advantage of hook and loop in a roll versus a a pre cut strap is flexibility. You cut just what you need, no more. There are many applications where a standard 8″ strap will just come up short, or long for that matter.
Quality. You can find cheap hook and loop just about anywhere online. But the right quality for the money is always a challenge. As a matter of fact, finding the right balance of price and quality when online shopping is a challenge with many products. That is why we feel we have an advantage with our hook and loop and really our entire product line. We are started as and continue to be a brick an mortar company that deals face to face with the tradesman who use our product. We don’t put things on our site that we couldn’t sell with confidence in person. Before we picked up our hook and loop line, we sent it around and made sure that it works well for cable management.
Selection. We currently offer our hook and loop in three colors and two widths. Sometimes something as simple as color can really make your cabling job pop. Black still seems to be the go to but the white and blue really have their place.
So remember, our hook in loop is not Velcro, watch the video, the Velcro folks explain it nicely!

You can install the top mount j hooks to the metal ceiling from the floor with the MagDaddy install tool as well. Check our site for videos of the magnetic j hooks in action. As with so many new products that may cost a little more at the outset, the real savings of a magnetic j hook comes in with time savings. Other than speed of install, any rework can be accomplished more quickly, just pull off and re install. You may also find some applications where the customer will not allow you to screw into the roof deck. We had this come into play on a job recently where the cable had to be supported every 5 feet but the bar joists are 6 feet part and our contractor was not allowed to drill into the deck. The magnetic j hooks were the solution.
While j hooks are more common, many applications still call for bridle rings. Obviously the same advantages apply to the bridle rings as the j hooks. With the magnetic bridle ring set up, we have elected to offer the magnetic base, part number MAG4TF separately, allowing you to choose your size of bridle wring plus choose from a standard bridle ring or a ring with saddle. These too can be installed from the floor like the magnetic j hooks.

J Hooks with bat wings are one of the most common types of j hooks used for data cabling. The bat wings as they are called are clips that will mount on to pencil rod, ceiling grid wire, 1/4″ all thread and smooth rod. While they will clip on to 3/8″ all thread with a little effort, not all j hooks with bat wings show data for these applications. This usually isn’t a real issue as the loads are usually quite low. While clipping on to existing ceiling grid supports is a no no, j hooks with bat wings still have many applications. You can shoot up your own ceiling wire and clip and add on j hooks at different heights for different runs. Shooter clips are also available with 1/4″ all thread installed which work perfect in situations where you are not allowed to hang on a grid wire or where you would want to have more of a rigid install. Simply shoot in the rod and add you j hooks with bat wings at the desired level. J hooks with bat wings are available in sizes ranging from 3/4″ to 4″. Check out our j hooks with bat wings along with a wide variety of data cable hangers online.
