When we were walking through the show at CEDIA EXPO 2011 we happened by the Magnepull booth and were blown away by this handy little tool. The Magnepull was developed for installers to solve the pain of fishing cables through walls.
In essence, you connect your cable to a magnetized weight and drop it into the wall at the top, then use the magnetic roller outside the wall to locate the cable and pull it down through the hole. It makes the process of running wires so simple that anyone could do it!
Without a doubt, the Magnepull deserves the GeekBeat Editors’ Choice award for its originality, simplicity, and the incredible amount of time and effort it saves the tens of thousands of installers that use them.
You can pick a Magnepull up on Amazon for $115! A paltry sum compared to the hassle it will save you.
