Temporary Cross Arm

 |  Kate Wade  |  ,

As a worldwide manufacturer of hot-line tools and equipment, Hastings understands that every day has the potential to bring the unexpected to lineworkers. That is why Hastings designs every product – including its Temporary Cross Arm – with safety in mind.

The innovative design is excellent for changing crossarms. Manufactured from solid fiberglass, the temporary crossarm offers a load capacity of 150 pounds per side with a 34.5-kV rating phase to phase.

The arm includes two standard conductor holders with insulators that accept conductors up to 1-1/16-inch O.D. In addition, the conductor latches are hot-stick operable and also available with larger 2-5/8-inch conductor holders.

The two-piece assembly makes installation easy and fast. The mounting base includes a ratchet and strap assembly that is lightweight, while the U-shape design fits conveniently over the pole-top pin. Captive bolts and washers on the arm assembly enable the arm to be mounted to the base
without the need for tools.
