Figure 1-24. Location of pole steps below strand-mounted
terminal placed to the left of an extension arm.
(4) Pole steps for pole-mounted cross-connecting terminals. Pole steps on pole supporting
cross-connecting terminals must permit an approach to the pole seat and provide a means for climbing
around the terminal. The steps should be installed as shown in Figure 1-27.
(a) Place steps A and B at their standard locations. If the terminal is located at a dead
end on the strand, install step B on the side of the pole away from the strand.
(b) To protect the terminal strut, locate step C on the quarter below step B. Place a line
on the side of the pole opposite step C.
