(2) When a side guy is to be placed on the side of the pole opposite the cable, use the same
thimble eyebolt to attach both the guy and the cable suspension clamp.
(3) When a head guy and a side guy are to be placed on the same pole, position the head guy
above the cable suspension stand.
(4) When the separation between two cable suspension strands on the same pole is more than
4 inches (10.16 cm), separate guys must be placed for each cable.
Installation of strain insulators. Stain insulators are placed in guy strands whenever it is
in the detailed plan. Strain insulators may be installed in the guy strand before securing the guy strand
to the pole or strut.
a. Number of strand clamps. Strand clamps are used to secure one guy strand to the strain
insulator. The number and type of strand clamps for use with the different size strands are identified in
the detailed plan.
b. Single strain insulators. Install single strain insulators with bolt-type and clevis-type
automatic-locking strand clamps as shown in Figure 2-25 and Figure 2-26.
