Running cables can be difficult, especially if you do not have the leading cavity wall feeder. Some electricians use cable rods, but they are straight and cannot go through a wall cavity. The best solution is to get the Australian-made tool called The Ferret. Introduced in 2001, The Ferret has a wheeled end that allows it to glide over obstacles. The Ferret also has the balance of being rigid and flexible, which allows it to bend and then return to its original shape. If you are working on a two storey building, you can purchase the eight-metre-long Ferret, which can cover the wall height.
In 2001, an innovative and passionate Australian formed a company that manufactures The Ferret in Australia. The objective behind this idea was to find a simple and safe tool for cable feeding. This tool would ease the work of a stand-alone worker when passing cables through cavities and crevices. The idea led to the manufacture of The Ferret tool.
