Plastic Adjustable Sno-Shoe® 16" Aerial Mounting Bracket

The Plastic Adjustable Sno-Shoe® is used to store slack fiber cable effectively and efficiently. Using a Sno-Shoe® for your cable run is a great precautionary choice and is cheaper than having to buy additional cable when emergency repairs, growth and expansion, splicing and general maintenance occurs. A Snoe-Shoe® will adhere to the bend radius of the cable, offering a more convenient method of storing extra cable when compared to other options such as a vault or storage box.

Product Quality

These cable management solutions are offered in adjustable and non-adjustable models. The adjustable models offer more flexibility in how you store slack. The closed, extended and fully open positions allow you to store the amount of slack needed for the situation. They allow much more to be stored than the non-adjustable model. In terms of cable fittings, our 10" shoe can hold cables up to 60 fibers and all-dielectric fibers up to 72 fibers. Our 16" shoe can hold cables up to 216 fibers and all-dielectric fibers up to 240 fibers. Lastly, our 24™ shoe can hold all currently available fiber counts and cable configurations.

Durability & Strength

This product has been manufactured to withstand high winds and weather, the plastic does not have sharp edges so it will not cut the cable you are storing. The plastic on this product has been designed to expand and contract in the event of a freeze with no permanent damage.

Additional Information

When figuring out which Sno-Shoe size® is right for you, the rule of thumb we go by is 10 x Fiber radius = Sno-shoe® size. For example if your cable has a outside diameter of 1/2™ then the calculation would be .5 x 10 = 5" minimum bend radius, in this case the 10™ Sno-Shoe® would be used. You can always go bigger than what the formula calls for, just not smaller. If more cable length is needed, Sno-Shoes® can be placed separately on the same strand to attain the desired distance. Our Sno-Shoes® even allow there to be a second cable installed without removing the first cable. The 24™ adjustable shoe has the ability to accommodate a second cable on the bottom side
