Tyler Tool Cable Pullers are mechanical devices that can be rigged to lift or pull a load. They generate strong pulling force to draw building wire, data com cable, and other large-diameter cable through conduit.

Using a cable puller can save money on labor costs and improve safety. Since you’re not pulling by hand, laborers will experience less strain and can devote attention to watching for problems.

Operating the Tyler Tool Cable Puller

The first step when operating the cable puller is determining the required amount of cable for your application.

You can do this by putting the handle spring in the free spool position. Then, depress the catch latch and pull out the required amount of cable needed for your application.

Raising or Pulling a Load

To raise or pull a load, first, make sure that the handle spring is positioned so that the pawl will properly engage the drum gears.

Lowering a Load

To lower or release the load in a controlled manner, move the handle spring to the position that disengages the pawl from the drum gear.

Raise the handle so that it comes into contact with the catch latch and repeat the process so that the load can be lowered one notch at a time.


To ensure proper operation, it is suggested that certain parts of the cable puller be periodically lubricated.
