Figure 2-26. Installation of a single strain insulator
with clevis-type, automatic-locking strand clamps.
c. Strain insulators in series. Install series strand insulators with 3-bolt strand clamps and
clevis-type automatic locking strand clamp as shown in Figure 2-27.
Tensioning guys to anchors and struts. A chain hoist or a block and tackle may be used to
tension guys to anchors and struts.
a. Guys at anchors (Figure 2-28).
(1) Pass the end of the guy strand through the eye of the anchor rod. Attach a strand grip to
the end of the guy strand and position this strand grip close to the eye of the anchor rod. Attach a
second strand grip to the main part of the guy, high enough on the guy to permit the removing of all
slack from the guy.
(2) Attach the chain hoist or blocks and tackle between the strand grips. Take up on the
chain hoist of tackle until all slack is pulled out of the guy. Secure the guy to the anchor. Remove the
pulling equipment and then serve the end of the guy.
b. Guys at struts. Pull up guys to struts as follows:
(1) Struts should be guyed with an anchor guy before placing any strain on the pole-to-strut
guy. Pass the end of the guy through the thimble eyenut and pull out as much slack from the guy as
possible. Temporarily secure the guy in this position with a three-bolt strand clamp.
