- Is there a way to "unspool" cable from the middle toward both ends?`````
I need to run about 70 ft of ethernet cable through my basement, which is actually two separate unconnected spaces ( there is a small gap above the dividing wall). Because of the layout -- bends and very limited space -- it will be much easier to start near the middle and pull toward each end. I made a simple holder for my spool of cable, but cannot figure out if there is a way to actually do this. Obviously if I pull 1/2 the length of cable then switch to the other end it is going to rewind the first part. Can anyone suggest a way, or confirm that I just have to pull for the entire length?
