E-Z Chain®: product overview

Cable Carriers with easy cable access


Cost-effective E-Z Chain® cable carriers offer easy access to cables and hoses via a split crossbar along the outer radius.

Cables and hoses can be installed or removed quickly - without the need for any tools. The split crossbars are flexible, but retain their shape and strength to provide secure protection as well as easy accessibility.
