    Without going through the video right now, did any of the dragons invest?

    They all made offers apart from Peter, not because he didn't like it but because he thought they should go with Duncan and James.

    Duncan and James increased upon her original offer of £50k for 15% with £80k for 25%. She negotiated this to £80 for 22.5% and took the deal.

    Deborah and Theo made an offer at her price of £50k for 15% which she declined.

    Such a simple invention as well, cheap as well.

    Whats wrong with cable rods?

    push one through attach cable (spring clip thing) which is better than a magnet tbh and pull through.

    Oh yes you can even get these kits with detachable magnets

    They're non conductive, extendable by adding rods together, can go around corners if needed and up through wall cavities between floors.

    accepted by health and safety

    seems she reinvented the wheel

    Well the dragon's think it's an excellent idea, and she's already sold quite a few units, let's not be british for a change and knock some one :rolleyes:

    well no if she got a patient through she could claim the others infringe....

    i am just saying that the right tool is out there

    obviously not all the attachments are used with live cables. the red is a magnet put that on and you have exactly the same thing.

    There is a better one but i can find them, has a spring thing, can remember name there British

    I thought the bin pedal was greatly undervalued

    Looking at her idea, no screwing things into each other is needed, there are less parts to lose. Far quicker using her method.

    err one rod is longer so to do a single wall you only need one.

    you only screw rods together if you need to feed cables through multiple floors in a building, Which she cant yet do

    you can loose the magnet that attaches to the cable with hers... in fact the other kit i mentioned (spring on end) has no parts at all.

    The thing is though, the kit you linked to costs £91.30 exc VAT.

    Although I agree, I think there are tools that do the job already, but admittedly I, nor the Dragons, thought to ask if one already existed.

    I do think her idea is quite a simply idea that does work very well though.

    yes that is the most expensive one i have seen the materials its made from aren't cheap so its quality,plus all the extra attachments. But is for a professional cable layer.

    You know that most BT, SKY staff wont go into loft spaces (without proper floor boards) because of health and safety?
    Thats often the reason they drill through outside walls and do a ugly job.

    the one i wonted to find is less that £20 i know places like JML, B&Q etc used to sell them.

    They were blue & yellow, and had a spring thing on the end that held the cable as you pulled it through. I actually want to buy one of them.
