    Hi there,

    After doing some research these guys are called cable grippers. I'm desperately looking for them in Cape Town or anywhere in SA.

    Will be used to suspend lighting with 1mm cables.

    These are the ones used on the Aquaria Lighting hoods. Maybe ask Lawrence at Aquaria-SA if he can help you.

    If you get these also ensure you get an adequate supply of ball bearings (I think they are 3mm) cause they get lost easily and then the thing does not grip the cable anymore - I speak from experience - even got so desperate that I tried trolling my substrate with a magnetic cleaner in the hopes I could maybe find it - but no luck.

    But really they are not that useful because once you have set your lights height you don't really need to change it, and even if you do it's not that much PT.

    Try GKD in Johannesburg. They have a website with PDF docs. They specialize in cable and fittings for balustrades and building industry. I got some stuff from them today (for 8mm cable).
