Effective Cable Management with the MTN Chain Slider
We also supply MTN Chain Sliders that provides a clean solution when using electric chain hoists. The more moving parts that are involved on stage or behind-the-scenes, the bigger issue cable mismanagement becomes. MTN Chain Sliders can address cable tangling that leads to damaged equipment, as well as an unsafe work environment.
