Also use pulling "soap" or other lubricant. It makes a mess but makes
pulling much easier. Also be sure to label the cables before pulling
so you won't have to "buzz then out" after the fact.
A "Chinese Handcuff" makes a good gripper for the front end of the
pull, it gets tighter the harder you pull.
