Installing Earth Straps

Easy to install, but important part of most ladder networks…

Normally, earth straps are installed between cable ladder splice joins or fitting installations. The strap itself is very simple: A strong cable with a metal lug on each end, and is installed through the ladder or fitting's connection hole. They create electrical continuity across your components, and enable you to ground your entire project's installation when used correctly.

Install once your splice plates or fitting is in place.
