The high strength joint protector is designed to cover the joint or splice between two lengths of conductor and allow it to pass through the stringing blocks without bending or damage.
The joint protector consists of two half steel sleeves with a split rubber protector at each end.
To use, position the rubber protectors over the conductor at each end of the joint or splice. Place the two steel sleeves over the joint and over the rear part of the rubber protectors.
Wrap each end of the steel sleeve with heavy duty fiberglass tape, at least 3 layers. This will hold the steel sleeves tightly together.
To remove the joint protector, simply cut the tape on each end then remove the steel sleeves and rubber protectors to use again.
NOTE : Customer to supply conductor joint dimensions with order. Timberland requires the length and cross section dimensions of the splice after compression.
