CurtainCage - 55 ft EasySlide Indoor Batting Cage Kit

SKU: IWCC
Your Price: $410.00



Indoor EasySlide Batting Cage Hardware Kit (for 55'L Single Lane Cage)

This complete batting cage hardware kit is optimal for properly suspending batting cage nets between walls, without the need for middle drop-cable support points.*

Our EasySlide CurtainCages include 3 steel cable lines (included) installed at the same height as your net. The cables attach to Steel FlexPlates (included), anchored into your wall or header (optional upgrade to truss/joist brackets available).

The included Steel Snaps join to Roller Wheels (included) to connect your net to the cable lines, allowing your tunnel to slide to either end of your facility like a giant shower curtain, collapsing to approximately 2-3' feet from the wall.

*Netting is sold separately. Review our stock sized batting cage nets, or custom build a net with our netting calculator.

Bottom-Line: A Wall CurtainCage results in less overall sag and has more of a "boxy" look than a LineLift CurtainCage, due to the net being attached directly to the linear cables every 2-3'. Just remember you will have 3 cables which run overhead at the same height as your net, unless you remove them each time. If you need to maximize your over-head space, you will want to consider a LineLift CurtainCage or a Wind-Up Winch CurtainCage.

Base Parts List for 55':

  • (3) 65' Rolls of 3/16" Aircraft Cable: Galvanized Coated (Lengthwise attachment)
  • (6) Steel Wall Plates: 5" x 5" (Anchor for Cable)
  • (24) Screw Lags (Wood or Concrete)
  • (3) Turnbuckles: 9" x 5/8" Jaw-Jaw Galvanized Steel (One end of each cable)
  • (12) 3/16" Cable-Clamps: Galvanized Steel (Secures cable ends)
  • (55) Steel Snap-hooks - Spring-loaded (Attaches 3 cables to top of net every 36" for 55' net)
  • (15) Nylon Roller Wheels (helps net slide easier)

Additional Available Parts (select from "Related Items" tab):

  • Adjustable mounting plates: Allows lines to adjust several inches vertically after lags have been set. Very useful to compensate for the sag over the years as the net relaxes.
  • Additional Steel-Snaps: Add more snaps for a more flush fit to the cables. More attachment points = less sag. Consider adding enough snaps for connecting every 12"-24".
  • Truss/Ceiling Brackets: Custom designed to fit your ceiling trusses, creating termination points for lines. Useful when your walls are too far apart, or they can't handle the high tension loads (approx 10 lbs per linear foot of span e.g. for a 70'L cage, you will have approx 350 lbs of tension on each end of each line)

How high will my main lines be mounted?
Your lines should be mounted at approximately 8-12" lower than the height of your net. For example, with a 12'H net you would mount your top lines at 11'4"H. Need a higher mount? Consider a LineLift Kit now available here.

1/4" Cable Spec (not all cable is created equal)

  • Wire Rope Material: Steel
  • Finish/Coating: Galvanized
  • Construction: 7x19 Strand Core
  • Diameter: 1/4"
  • Breaking Strength: 7,000 lbs.

*Certain applications may require vertical supports to reduce cable slope - typically cages which are heavier and/or have a longer span.
