CurtainCage - Custom EasySlide Cable Kit


Custom EasySlide Batting Cage Kit

We can customize a CurtainCage EasySlide Kit to fit your facility perfectly. Use our Online Discount Bundler or Contact Us to build.

Our EasySlide CurtainCages include 3 linear cables which run the same height as your net. The cables attach to turn-buckles, which attach to Steel FlexPlates, which anchor into your wall or structure (optional upgrade to truss/joist brackets available). Steel snaps attach the cable lines to the top of your tunnel, creating a "curtain effect" - allowing your tunnel to slide to either end of your facility, collapsing to approximately 2-3' feet from the wall.

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.

Example Parts List:

  • (3) 80'L Rolls of 1/4" Aircraft Cable: Galvanized Coated (Lengthwise attachment)
  • (6) Steel Wall Plates: 8" x 8"
  • (24) Screw Lags (Wood or Concrete)
  • (15) 1.5" Steel Roller Wheels (helps slide easier)#
  • (6) Turnbuckles: 9" x 5/8" Jaw-Jaw Galvanized Steel (2 per cable)
  • (12) 1/4" Cable-Clamps: Galvanized Steel (Secures cable ends)
  • (100) Steel Snap-hooks - Spring-loaded

Recommended Add-on Parts:

  • 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.
  • Roller Wheels: Helps cables slide smoother, preventing grooves from wearing in snaps, resulting in snags. The more used, the easier it will slide. Consider adding 1 per attachment point (see Related Items tab).

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

  • 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?
This model allows your main cables to be mounted up to approximately 11'4"H when used with 12'H net (LineLift Kits 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.
