FRP Clampsticks

External Rod Clampsticks are constructed of closed cell foam-filled tubular fiberglass in accordance with ASTM standard F711. The hook’s operating rod, made of solid 3/8” (9.5mm) dia. fiberglass, is mounted on the exterior of the tool so that it can be easily wiped down prior to use. These Clampsticks meet ASTM F1825 Standards.

Fiberglass Hot Switch Sticks

Switch Sticks use closed cell foam filled tubular fiberglass made in accordance with ASTM Standard F711. Both the standard head and the heavy duty prong disconnect are made of durable high strength aluminum bronze alloy.

Toggle Handle Fiberglass Clampsticks

Fiberglass Hot Switchsticks are manufactured in accordance with the following specifications: ASTM F711, OSHA 1910.269(j), and OSHA 1926.951(d). All handles are made from pultruded, smooth, foam-filled fiberglass. Safety yellow is the primary fiberglass color. It is recommended that handles be wiped clean with a silicote cloth before and after every use.

The Sectionalizer Kit

The Sectionalizer Kit temporarily disconnects and isolates a section of line without interrupting service to the balance of the circuit. The entire operation of installation and removal of the sectionalizers can be performed with live line tools. Particularly useful when circuits are interrupted as a result of conductor, insulation or pole failures. Service can be restored by cutting in sectionalizers to isolate the section of line that is in trouble.

Insulating Link Sticks

The Insulating Link Sticks are designed to isolate rope, hoists, and blocks being used between energized conductors and a pulling device.Also provide dielectric properties if strap hoist becomes contaminated through field use.Cat. Nos.2512, 2518, and 2524 are made with solid fiberglass. All insulating link sticks are proof tested and marked with WLL prior to shipment. Other lengths and configurations available.All bags hold 3 link sticks.Bags not included.

Also available in a 1’ length stick.

Static Discharge Sticks

A Discharge Hook is used to drain capacitive voltage. The probe is first used to make contact, then the hook can be used to make direct contact bypassing the fuse. The fuse gives added protection in case initial contact is accidentally made on energized equipment. Fuse is rated at 8 kV maximum, 6 amperes continuous.

A Discharge Hook is a special discharging device used to deenergize capacitors and other voltage retaining components before maintenance work is performed. Mounting clip (Cat. No. 1925MC) is included. Standard handle length is 2 feet (0.61 m). Other cable and handle lengths are available.
