"Making wire pull smoother:"

When pulling wire in pvc pipe, the wire, snake, or drag will burn through the throat of the connector if not pulled exactly straight through the connector. Install a metal bushing so the wire, snake, or drag can ride on the bushing and not damage the pipe or the wire.

When pulling MC or BX cable across a T-bar ceiling, install a scrap piece of 1/2-inch or 3/4-inch EMT with caddy fasteners to the starting grid so as to keep the MC or BX from snagging the edge of the grid and bending it. It will also aid in pulling smoother. This could also be used when pulling communication cables.
