Lever-Lift Wire Tong Support

Aluminum Base
Lever Lift Wire Tong Supports are employed where working space on the pole is limited, or on H-frame or heavy suspension insulator construction for raising or lowering conductors with wire tongs. As a general practice, the Lever Lift should be used in place of Wire Tong Saddles where loads exceed 500 pounds.

A wire tong is attached to the Single Type by simply removing the cotter key, sliding the shaft to the side, placing the butt ring of the tong into the fork, shooting the shaft through, and replacing the cotter key. For the Double Type, remove the wing nuts, slip butt rings of the two wire tongs on the shaft extensions and replace wing nuts.

Made of a high strength aluminum alloy, these lever Lifts are light in weight . . . and easy to handle. They provide atotal conductor lift of 20 3/4 inches, and will support any size of wire tong. When two Lever Lifts are required, one at each side of the pole, they can be attached at virtually the same height.

An arbor adapter is available to convert the Single Type Lever Lift to a Double Type when desired.

Each Lever Lift is equipped with a clevis for attaching rope blocks. The clevis, used at the end of the Lever Lift for attaching the lower rope blocks, will rotate on the same pin that holds the wire tong(s), permitting freedom of movement.

Epoxiglas® Base
Epoxiglas Lever Lift Wire Tong Supports are for the same application as aluminum-base units, but are normally used on higher transmission voltages where more lifting space is required. Epoxiglas unit has a total conductor lift of 36 inches. The arbor adapter (M47602) shown above can be used to convert an Epoxiglas lever lift into a double lift for tow wire tongs.

The Epoxiglas member is 36" long and provides the same working load per tong as the aluminum units.
