When choosing to use a CurtainCage system (wall to wall cable kit) which allows you to slide the net on cable lines, sometimes cable lines can't be anchored into wall whether it's due to obstructions on the wall or longer gaps between walls.

This is a general guide that will help you determine what parts are necessary and the quantities needed of each part. The cable line setup will need an anchor point to the wall (either a wall plate or an eye-bolt of shorter distances). The cable line will need to have loops on each end to connect to the anchor point or to the turnbuckle which connects to the anchor point. The turnbuckle is used to control the tension on the cable line. With distances longer than 80' and with...
At Practice Sports we offer three main types of indoor batting cages. The CurtainCage, the Track & Trolley, and the AirCage, are designed to fit a variety of uses and budgets. Let’s take a close look at all three types of cages.

Roller wheels can be attached to allow the cage to glide along...
