The Tail Tamer™ (patent pending) is a revolutionary lineman invention that safely controls conductors during construction and maintenance. It is a temporary, multi-purpose hot line clamp for stringing, cutting and connecting overhead conductors.
Lineman can get more done while creating a safer work area with the Tail Tamer™.
Safely hold back tail ends of conductors when stringing new wire. Current method is usually tape. ASTM’s 29 CFR 1910.269(l)(2)(i) states “The employee must have positive control . . .in order to be considered insulated from the energized parts.”
Safely cut slack conductors (up to 200 lbs. of tension between Clamp & Carabiner) while maintaining positive control of loose ends. ASTM’s 29 CFR 1910.269(l)(2)(i) states “. . . if an employee is cutting an energized conductor . . . the conductor would need to be maintained under positive control.
The Double Sided Clamp holds two conductors simultaneously. Easily attach parallel grove and crimp connectors.
Functions as a Temporary Parallel Groove Connector rated at 300 Amps.
