"How to repair a coiled up fish tape:"

From: Scott Lear

Often when a tape is pulled across a connector the tape turns into a tight coil.. To remove the coiling use a piece of EMT abd a little pulling soap or WD-40 and the tape will lay flat on the floor like it should. Take a bender and bend the EMT into the shape pf three or four consecutive sine waves. Push the fish tape through the EMT, sometimes the soap or WD-40 makes this part easier. Push the tape through and pull back out.
