RJL Elbow Disconnect Tools

RJL Elbow Disconnect Tools

The patented RJL Elbow Disconnect Tools allow for easy removal of URD elbows on transformers and deadfront switchgear. Their heavy-duty construction provides long-term, reliable and safe operation. With models and lengths for 15KV, 25KV and 35KV applications, the RJL tools are effective on all makes and models of URD elbows.

Retractable vinyl coated jaws and a hook at the working end of the tool open up to access the elbow. Connecting the hook to the eye of the elbow allows for additional effort to remove the elbow. The jaws are then secured snugly around the elbow as the tool engages. The ratchet is engaged, and after a few clicks, the seal between elbow and junction is broken. Even those that have frozen in place over time are easily released.
