ERICO® Offers Innovative New Caddy® Products to Simplify a Variety of Installations

SOLON, Ohio, USA, March 2009 - CADDY® is unveiling an exciting new group of products to help simplify on-site installations. These versatile products address a variety of common installation issues, and through innovative designs and unique features, help to save time, labor and money on the jobsite. Each easy-to-install product is part of the well-known and trusted CADDY line of fasteners from ERICO®.

Suitable for both nonmetallic and MC/AC cables, the patent-pending CER4 features a unique "stop-bend" design to help prevent cables from being pushed or pulled out of a location during the drywall phase. This innovative cable support maintains the 1-1/4" spacing from the face of the stud that is required by the NEC®. It is UL® Listed and can support up to four cables at once.

The TEB23 Electrical Box Bracket is an easy-to-install method for mounting boxes or plaster rings in low-voltage applications. Two far-side supports provide increased stability after installation and feature protective feet to help prevent damaging the drywall. The patent-pending TEB23 is cULus® Listed and can be mounted from any side of the bracket. A box-lock tab helps prevent electrical boxes from detaching during shipment from the pre-fab location to the jobsite.

The FMSBC1 Fixture Mount Stabilizer Clip levels signage and eliminates bulges in ceiling tiles created during the installation of trim rings, signage or security cameras. It requires no tools for installation and is ideal for use with square or hex-shaped electrical boxes. The patent-pending FMSBC1 also maintains its shape after installation.

The MP1WWM Within Wall Mounting Plate is ideal for installing low-voltage cable, phone and data lines. It mounts inside the wall to prevent unsightly gaps between the faceplate and mounting plate. Innovative features include: yellow markers indicate correct installation, marking dimples identify accurate location for cutout in the wall, tether pulls it into place, and securing pins lock the plate into place to help prevent movement. The MP1WWM is cULus Listed.
