Wire and cable installation solution company Platinum Tools has launched its new HPH J-Hooks, a new line of high-performance hybrid hooks designed for a variety of applications.
The hooks — designed for high-performance cables like Cat6a, Cat7, and fiber optics — feature a smooth, radiused 2-inch wide base with no pressure points. They’re UL listed, Plenum-rated and TIA compliant, the company said in a Wednesday press release.
Platinum Tools says the hooks have a bend radius of more than 3.5 inches, which meet and exceed TIA standards. This also prevents cables from being damaged or deformed.
In a statement, Product manager John Phillips said the hooks are designed to support modern high performance network cable installations like data centers, commercial structures, manufacturing facilities and residential applications.
The HPH J-Hooks are built with steel J-Hooks over-molded with Plenum-rated polypropylene for an easy cable slide, Phillips said.
“The ‘Snap-Lock’ retainer is easy-to-use and reuse, firmly securing cables every time and eliminating the use of cable and velcro ties,” he added.

The hooks are available in four colors: white, red, blue and black, allowing for the easy identification of cable runs for different purposes to help installers and maintenance make the right decisions when on the site.
The also come in four different sizes: 1 inch, 2 inch, 3 inch and 4 inch.
“All four sizes can be flush mounted for easy installation, and come pre-assembled to the most common fasteners, with options for special-order custom attachments,” Phillips said. “Unlike most of its competitors, the Snap-Lock, when open, even expands the HPH J-hook’s cable capacity.”
