Utility Solutions Inc. recently unveiled their latest hot stick probe – the Quick Grab Probe – which is a unique spline-end attachment that is specifically engineered to easily open fuse doors on overhead cutouts.
The most unique feature of the Quick Grab Probe is the additional probe on the side of the tool. Most hot stick probes have a single probe that can engage the ring on a fuse barrel. The Quick Grab Probe uses a dual-probe design so that a lineworker can easily find the fuse door pull-ring from a distance.
The Quick Grab Probe also uses an arched head that can slide against a fuse barrel. Locating that barrel with a long telescopic hot stick often is a struggle. Once the operator has found the barrel, the secondary probe is automatically positioned to find the pull-ring with just a slight turn.
