This Series of Pole Mount Slack Storage is designed to protect the slack fiber.
The Multilink Plastic Sno-Shoe® has been designed with two purposes in mind. The first is to store additional lengths of fiber along the strand for later use. The second is to act as a safeguard, protecting the minimum bend radius of the fiber optic cable while establishing proper installation practices. The ...
As fiber optics become increasingly common across the telecommunications industry, more companies are looking for slack storage solutions to help protect unused fiber optic cable from damage so it can function in a network when needed. Multilink's lineup of proprietary Sno-Shoe™ spools includes slack storage devices for all applications and environments. We have everything from strand mounts to wall, pole and pad mount devices.

To protect cables from damage, technicians need aerial solutions specifically engineered to hold fiber optics. Multilink's Sno-Shoes protect fiber slack from damage by maintaining the fiber's minimum bend radius while facilitating proper handling and installation practices. By designing our aerial slack storage with fiber optics in mind, we're able to provide more reliable storage compared to typical options.
Our fiber slack storage spools also feature durable materials safe for use with fiber optics. For a non-conductive alternative to metal, we use a lightweight yet tough plastic proven to resist harsh weather conditions, including freezing. The Sno-Shoe's smooth, plastic frame prevents its edges from cutting through slack cable.
When implemented properly, our fiber optic storage spools organize fibers efficiently and protect them from damage in your network for years.
Whether you need to store a small amount of fiber slack for day-to-day operations or a large amount for future use, you can find the perfect fiber optic slack management spool for the job in our collection. We offer Sno-Shoes in a number of adjustable and non-adjustable sizes.
Our standard, non-adjustable spools come in four sizes ranging from 7" to 21" and can accommodate cables with high fiber counts and various diameters, ideal for storage and transport.
If you need a flexible fiber slack storage solution, our adjustable models are exactly what you're looking for. These adaptable spools have three positions — closed, extended and open — which allow you to adjust your storage to any situation. Our versatile Sno-Shoes hold large amounts of fiber slack, while our largest 24" spool holds cables of all available fiber counts and configurations.
To further increase fiber slack storage efficiency, you can also choose a number of accessories for your strands, allowing you to store multiple spools more easily or to store more fiber optic cable on a single spool.
Our Sno-Shoe Accessories include slack storage boxes, Sno-Shoe extension & stacking kits and mounting brackets.
Fiber optic slack storage and management forms an essential but often-overlooked part of network maintenance. Telecommunications companies need efficient and safe fiber slack storage tools to protect valuable fiber optics from damage.
