Hendrix Vise Tops incorporate a clamping mechanism into the top of the insulator to provide quick & easy conductor installation without the need for additional tie products. WHen used with the VTST-1 (Vise Top Stringing Tool), conductors can be installed without seperate stringing blocks. This is a way to significantly reduce installation costs. Vise Top Insulators are suitable to for use with all conductor sizes and types: covered, aluminum or copper conductors.
Vise top insulators are molded from a proprietary blend of gray, track-resistant, high density polyethylene. They conform with the electrical and mechanical requirements of ANSI C29.5 and C29.6. Nominal voltage ratings are 15kV, 25kV and 35kV. They are designed to fit on standard 1" or 1 3/8" pins.
