There’s a new cable in town. It’s called MC Glide Lite™, but you’ll call it a miracle. No more backbreaking pulls. No more damaged studs. Just a smoother, faster experience.

We completely rethought the profile of MC Glide™. It’s designed to glide through metal studs and ceilings with ease, without sacrificing flexibility or strength, so you can finish the job in half the time.

MC Glide Lite™ features:

Easier pulls. U.S. Patented* armor profile is designed to reduce fatigue on your workers when pulling cable through metal studs and ceilings.
*U.S. Patent No. 11,101,056

No need for new tools. Works with the same tools, fittings and supports as traditional MC Cables.

Time savings. From the first pull, installing MC Glide Tuff™ will be smoother, faster and easier to work with.

Minimize damage to studs. Less resistance means less opportunity for cable hang ups, that may knock down studs.
