Figure 2-24. Served end of installed guy stand.
b. Installation of bolt-type strand clamps.
(1) Position the tail of the guy parallel to the main part of the guy. Loosen the nuts on the
clamp. Place the tail of the guy into one groove of the clamp. Allow the desired length of tail to extend
beyond the clamp. If more than one clamp is required, allow additional space for the camps. When
more than one clamp is required, butt the clamps solidly together.
(2) Place the main part of the guy strand, or the guy end coming from the opposite direction,
into the second groove of the guy clamp. Tighten the nuts on the clamp to hold the guy stand firmly in
place. Be sure the beveled (chambered) side of the clamp nuts bear against the clamp. Tighten the
clamp nuts again, after the guy is under tension.
c. Installation of the clevis-type, automatic-locking strand clamps.
(1) Disassemble the clamp to obtain its three component parts (bail, yoke, and stand vise).
(2) Pass one end of the bail through the eye of the thimble eyebolt, anchor rod, or stain
insulator to which the guy is to be attached.
(3) Force the ends of the bail together until the yoke can be placed over the bail ends.
(4) File off any burrs on the end of the guy strand. Pass the end of the guy stand through the
opening in the small end of the stand vise. Pass the stand completely through the vise. Allow the strand
end to extend beyond the large end of the vise at a maximum of 3 inches (7.62 cm).
d. Installation of connecting-type, automatic-locking clamp.
(1) File any burrs or deformed edges from the end of the guy strand to be connected.
