Cross Arm Gin and Transformer Gin Assemblies

Cross Arm Gins are used on cross arms when only one conductor needs to be raised. Use the arm gin to change insulators; apply an armor rod to a conductor; raise a conductor from a lower position to the cross arm, or lower the conductor. The 2-1/2” (6.4 cm) diameter fiberglass pole has two eyes at the top in which to hook the block line and tie back line. The base fits a 4-3/4” x 5-7/8” (12.1 x 14.9 cm) cross arm. Included shims are needed for smaller arms.
