Super PULLBOX® Plus Security Tether / Counterbalance
Vulcan Spring’s Super PULLBOX® Plus combines longer extension and greater pull with a ratcheting mechanism. While it can be used as a heavy duty security tether, the Super PULLBOX® Plus is often used for hanging object support, such as hanging signs. The Super PULLBOX® Plus combination of features provides the support and pull strength needed for hanging these objects easily. The ratcheting mechanism makes objects changing simple. Signs stay down when pulled, then with a second tug return to their original position. It is available with a maximum ten foot cable and up to six pounds of force.
Custom Super PULLBOX Plus designs can be quickly and cost-effectively manufactured to create the ideal security tether or counterbalance solution. There are many standard options for the cable, end fitting and box.
