Harness Styles (Methods of Binding)

One-Pull provides you with the tools you need for the perfect cable solution. Regardless of the industry, intricacy, or size of the pull we provide you with everything you might need to finish the job quickly and with as much precision as is possible. We provide custom harnesses to ensure that regardless of your preferences, or the length of your pull, you can get all of your cables and wires from point a to point b and every point in between.

  • Bound Harnesses are perfect for getting large bundles of wires/cables across long distances without compromising them.
  • Cross and Spiral laced harnesses bring a tight and secure bundle.
  • Cross Tape Pull Tabs allow for staggering end destinations for cables and wires, making it perfect for shorter more complicated pulls.
  • Straight Parallel harnesses allow for a tight, secure bundle that can travel across longer distances without an excess of materials in the actual harness.

Spiral Wrap Method or Single Bind

A single strand of industrial thread or tape is used to bind all components together. It is the standard wrap for most spiral configuration cable.

  1. Available in a Strong nylon wax bonded or Kevlar Binder that lays flat for easy pulling.
  2. Spiral methods allows for bundles to be cut to varying lengths as needed (must tape either side of the cut) and remain bound.
  3. Available in varying tightness, and our expert production staff works to ensure that no damage to the wire occurs during the manufacturing process.
  4. Keeps wire neatly together in a parallel configuration
  5. Contractor preference usually dictates its use.
  6. Normally AWG sizes #24 to #10, limited by a 2 inch OD, and/or equipment limitations in regards to weight, OD, and Reel Size.

Cross Laced

Double-Cross Wrap or “Double Diamond method” or “Cross Laced method”

The Double Bind method is the standard wrap for a straight pull configuration cable. Available in a Strong nylon wax bonded or Kevlar Binder that lays flat for easy pulling.

  1. Double bind method allows for bundles to be cut to varying lengths as needed (must tape either side of the cut) and remain bound.
  2. Available in varying tightness, and our expert production staff works to ensure that no damage to the wire occurs during the manufacturing process.
  3. Keeps wire neatly together in a parallel configuration
  4. Contractor preference usually dictates its use.
  5. Almost any size wire can be bundled from #24 AWG to 4/0 AWG only limited by a 2 inch OD, and/or equipment limitations in regards to weight, OD, and Reel Size.

Cross Tape Pull Tabs

Pull Tabs Method or Cross Tape Method or Quick Release Method

Electrical tape with a pull tab or quick release twist is used to bind all paralleled components. This tape is applied every 5 to 10 feet approximately. This method is preferred by some contractors when they feel the the spiral wrap is to restrictive and may get hung up in the conduit, raceway, wireway, gutter, or tray.

  1. Bundles secured by electrical tape every 5-10″ depending on the length of the run
  2. Tabs are easily removed for a cleaner, faster pull and the conductors move free in the conduit reducing the number of places the wire catches.
  3. Conductors can be marked at spacing intervals of 1 to 6 inches with up to 255 characters in either black or white ink
  4. For bundling #24 to #6 AWG wire up to and over 2″ in diameter, only restricted by equipment limitations for weight, OD and reel size.

Straight Parallel

Straight Parallel

Just like all the other tighter harnesses, the cross laced and spiral, the straight parallel harness provides the least material holding it all together while still providing the amount of security needed for long pulls.

* Job requires 37,675 ft of wire, but customer must purchase 47,500 ft of wire to complete the job. Almost 10,000 ft more than needed!
19 spools @ 2,500 ft are required to get 55 cuts at 685 ft each which leaves 18 x 445 ft short pieces and 1 x 1,815 ft
The 9,825 ft of excess wire requires the contractor to pay an additional $766.35 for wire they must store, tying up cashflow or recycle.
