B&H site says that safety cable has been discontinued - is there an updated part number from B&H?


If you search safety cable on B&H, lots of others come up.
If you have a problem relating to the Live Music Archive (http://www.archive.org/details/etree) please send an e-mail to us admins at etree(AT)archive(DOT)org or post in the LMA thread here and we'll get on it.

Get picture hanging wire and make one yourself.  Just wrap some of the extra cable and secure with Gaffers tape.  I used 100lb wire and made 4 cables for cheap.  My Grandmother (RIP) made shell plaques that weighted a ton and used this stuff to hang them with no problem.

Also, static climbing rope or cord (between 3 and 9mm) with proper fig8 knots and 2 carabiners should work as well.

Bump because this is a good thread to keep around. Does anyone have a picture of the safety cable in action? They don't really come with instructions, and it appears to be self-explanatory, but a picture is worth a thousand words they say.

This is a good thread to keep around with lots of pictures and links.

I agree with making your own safety cables. I got 15 feet of picture hanging cable for about $3 and a pack of carabiners for around $6. now I have about four cables of varying length.

If you do want to make your own, don't stop at the two or three pound cables but get something like 15 pounds.

Look back at the detail pic from my rig on page 3, about halfway down. I have it wrapped around the rail and both ends secured where the stud enters the superclamp

I think there are longer ones available, that's just the first hit I got. They use then to secure stage lights. And company that sells lighting equipment will have them.

"the Avenger" D230 - Super Clamp Grip Head

http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/124734-REG/Avenger_D230_Super_Clamp_Grip_Head.html

I'm thinking of trying one of these to clamp from an overhead light bar. The clamp is a little pricey, but should allow me to fabricate an extention bar on the cheap (parts list = a 5' length of pipe, a 3/8" bolt, 2-part epoxy & some black spray paint).

Rather than using pipe you might consider aluminum tubing, You can get it at almost any hardware store. Much lighter weight. You might also consider drilling a couple of holes where you epoxy the bolt in so that the epoxy have a better grip on the tubing. If you go with tubing you might wedge a short piece of dowel rod in the end that gets clamped so that it doesn't crush.

Or you could use PVC.  I use 1/2" sch-80.  Sch-80 is dark grey instead of white.
