Utility Solutions Tail Tamer™ – Temporary Conductor Clamp – USTT-001

Part # USTT-001

The Tail Tamer™ (patent pending) is a revolutionary lineman invention that safely controls conductors during construction and maintenance. It is a temporary, multi-purpose hot line clamp for stringing, cutting and connecting overhead conductors.

Specifications:

1.Safely hold back tail ends of conductors when stringing new wire. Current method is usually tape. ASTM’s 29 CFR 1910.269(l)(2)(i) states “The employee must have positive control . . .in order to be considered insulated from the energized parts.”

2.Safely cut slack conductors (up to 200 lbs. of tension between Clamp & Carabiner) while maintaining positive control of loose ends. ASTM’s 29 CFR 1910.269(l)(2)(i) states “. . . if an employee is cutting an energized conductor . . . the conductor would need to be maintained under positive control.

3.The Double Sided Clamp holds two conductors simultaneously. Easily attach parallel grove and crimp connectors.

4.Functions as a Temporary Parallel Groove Connector rated at 300 Amps.

Features:

-Double Sided Clamp
-Holds TWO Wires Simultaneously (#6 Copper up to 954 ACSR or 1.1” dia)
-Quick Release Clamp and Easy Grip Barrel
-Rated at 300 Amps
-Rated up to 200 lbs. between Clamp & Carabiner (w/ 5 times safety factor)
-High Strength Tether and Carabiner Connects to Each Other, Buckets, Belts and more
