Grip-All hinged style clampstick, 8 ft 6 in designed for installing hot-line and grounding clamps.
The most versatile tool in a lineworker's hands, the Gri-All stick puts an easy-to-control finger on an insulated pole. Although primarily designed for installing hot-line and grounding clamps, it serves both overhead and underground circuits with various end fittings. Commonly called a shotgun, the operating mechanism incorporates a sliding hand grip that opens the hook to grasp a clamp eyescrew and retract it into the tool head. A thumb latch must then be depressed to release the locked hand grip so it can open the hook. While the tool head is of Lexan for close-quarter operations, the worker must maintain recommended working distance solely on the Epoxiglas pole section of the handle, as the hook and it's actuator are metal parts. Easy to care for, the Grip-All sticks do not require field stripping to clean. All insulated parts including the operating rod are outside the main pole, readily accessible to wipe dry. CAUTION: Do not clean the plastic head with solvent.
