Original Press Release:

New Cost-Effective, Time-Saving CADDY® SPEED LINK LD for Lighting and Installation Projects

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - SOLON, Ohio, May 2005 - CADDY® SPEED LINK LD is a universal support system that quickly suspends static loads, even at an angle. It is a cost-effective alternative to jack chain, threaded rod and associated hardware in lighting and other installation projects. The 1.5 mm (0.059 in.) wire rope with a crimped-on hook holds working loads of up to 20 kg (44 lb) with a 5:1 safety factor.

A small, aesthetically pleasing locking device completes the assembly. This low-profile stainless-steel device ensures stability and allows for additional vertical adjustment after wire insertion. A small screwdriver releases the lock for fast installation adjustments.

The wire rope/hook assembly is made of galvanized steel as standard, but is also available in stainless steel for applications where a higher level of corrosion resistance is required. The system installs without drilling or tools and allows objects to be hung at an angle - e.g., from sloped ceilings.

CADDY SPEED LINK LD is available in 2m (6.6ft), 5m (16.4ft) and 10m (32.8ft) lengths. It works with a variety of CADDY® Fasteners including beam clamps and purlin clips or can be looped directly around the beam.

This versatile support system hangs lighting fixtures, speakers, alarm sensors, signage and pipes, among other things. A convenient plastic sleeve keeps the wire rope looped up until the contractor is ready to install. An optional extension tool allows CADDY SPEED LINK LD to be installed from the ground.
