Q: Are COM Dangles better than Metal J's?

A: We think so, here's why:

- The jackets of all data and communication cables are plastic. Metal J's are harder on the surface.  It is better to use the softer plastic of the COM Dangles.

- If Metal J's are installed at constant distances, they can cause harmonic interference in the data communication stream.

- Metal J's hard metal surfaces create points of contact forcing the cables to bend.  COM Dangles conform to the cable creating an even cushion for the cables. (see below)
