In the world of electrical cable supports the crimp type cable hanger is used in many different applications. When the cables you’re working with are similar in diameter, and only one or two cables are installed, Production Fastening Systems (PFS) tapped cable hangers are ideal for the job. Our hangers can also accommodate up to 4 cables in our Four Stack type, otherwise known as “field goals.” The crimp type tapped cable hangers are durable and convenient-to-use cable supports, made to fasten to 3/8-16 diameter weld studs. They are quick and easy to install and are featured in both Stainless and Mild Steel. We are also happy to help choose the best crimp type cable hanger for your specific needs.

  6. Fasten the desired hanger onto the newly-welded stud.
