Grip-All Clampsticks
Grip All Clampsticks

New for the 21st Century with black head and *stainless steel components Single-Piece Style
The most versatile tool in a lineworker's hands, the Grip-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 then must 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 its actuator are metal parts.
Easy to care for, 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.
For smooth operation, investment-casting stainless steel components include Jaw, Jaw Holder, Safety Stop, Lockbar and Latch illustrated below.*
To accept grounding clamps with long eyescrews, all Grip-All clamp­sticks feature 6-3/4 inches of head travel.

Telescoping Grip-All Clampsticks
Telescoping Clamp Stick

New for the 21 st Century with black head
Available in two sizes, each readily locks at variable working lengths.
The design features a rotating coupler and an engineered positive-lock button with safety stop to keep the sections from parting or the hook releasingw hile in use. The mechanism locks the sections into a solid and rattle-free tool.
Telescoping Style
Our Telescoping Grip-All Stick can replace several conventional clamp­sticks. With fewer sticks, it still permits linemen to serve their many safe­working distances and positioning needs. This can reduce the number of clampsticks required on a line truck, saving limited storage space.
Engineered interface between sections ensures that tool retracts with full control. Close fit also helps keep out dirt and moisture. Top section is of foam-center Epoxiglas® insulated pole.
Basic clampstick functions of this telescoping style are identical to the fixed-length style. All controls can be manipulated while wearing gloves. Easy to disassemble, the Telescoping Grip-All Stick must be kept clean and dry inside and out for maximum personnel protection.

Arc Snuffer Removal & Replacement Tools
Arc Snuffer Removal & Replacement Tools

Without de-energizing URD bushings, these two hot-line tools permit easy retrieval of broken arc snuffers and instal­lation of replacements.
Designed to ensure adequate electrical clearances, both tools are to be used expressly in a Grip All clampstick. Integral ring on each tool retracts into clampstick. Tool bodies are high-impact plastic with steel inserts.
Removal Tool works on the principle of a bolt extractor. Inserted into a damaged arc snuffer, it permits retrieval by unscrewing the broken part.
Replacement Tool controls alignment with a spring-action center post that snaps into the arc snuffer bore. Two steel lugs ofthe tool engage holes in the snuffer collar to transmit tightening torque.

Elbow Puller Tools
Elbow Puller Tool
Impact Elbow Puller Tool

Application
These tools facilitate removing elbow connectors from bushings of transformers and other apparatus. Elbows that have been installed for a long period of time sometimes are difficult to remove because silicone grease on the interface of the elbow and bushing dries out and hardens.
A special integral hook on the tool heat fits through the rubber eye of an elbow or the metal hook of a bushing cap. Used in this manner, the hook adds extra control and pulling power to the grippers.
IMPACT Elbow-Puller Tools Design Features
The lightweight tool employs a simple, slide-hammer mechanism to easily disengage and assist in replacing elbows. The tool and grippers help the operator control the elbow and stiff underground cable lead.
For a sure, balanced grip the 5-pound slide hammer is plastisol coated and flared at both ends. Also for secure handling, both front and rear handgrip areas of the pole are coated with Griptread, a grit-filled rubber-base paint.
Available in three lengths, the tools are made of 1-1/4" -diameter orange Epoxiglas® pole. The 6- and 8-foot units meet OSHA requirements with 25 and 48 inches of insulation respectively from the tool end to the handguard (as factory assemble). On the 4-1/2-foot unit (labeled "For Rubber Glove Use Only") insulation length measures 5 inches.
Operation
To pull an elbow connector: Insert hook through eye on elbow. Close down grippers on elbow by rotating pole. Support tool with one hand on front grip behind handguard and other hand on slide hammer. Slam hammer from front to rear anvil. Resulting impact should release elbow with sufficient momentum to withdraw it from the bushing without extended arcing.
To replace an elbow connector: Follow the same procedures for pulling except use slide hammer impact against front anvil to help seat the elbow.

Wire Holding Stick
Wire Holding Stick
The Chance Epoxiglas® Wire- Holding Stick is used on or around energized lines for forming, bending and positioning jumper wires; and for holding conductors during splicing operations. The gripper, equipped with an eye so that other sticks can assist with heavy bending, will handle No.6 solid copper through 1590 kcmil ACSR.
Operation ofthe Wire-Holding Stick has been simplified so that it grips much like locking-type pliers. By tightening the knurled nut at the control lever, the wire­holding jaws can be positioned to firmly grip the conductor. When this is done, the tightening control lever must be relaxed in a position about 1 inch away from the pole. Then, to secure the grip on the conductor, push lever down to pole; and to release the conductor simply move the control lever all the way up along the rod.
The head of the tool locks in three stop positions so that the lineman can engage and position conductors easily from most angles. The knurled screw handle below the jaw opening is used to adjust the head position from straight to right or left.

Telescoping Disconnect Tools
Telescoping Disconnect Tools

Certified to OSHA dielectric requirements (Sub-part V, section 1926.951) and tested per ASTMF1826-00, Chance Epoxiglas® Telescoping Tools have maximum convenience for the line­man because they permit him to perform many routine jobs from ground level. The universal end fitting on the insulated top section accepts a wide variety of attachments so that the lineman can disconnect switches, replace cutout tubes and reclose, remove pole covers, prune trees and complete many other overhead tasks ... all with one tool.
The sticks retract to approximately 5 ft. so that they can be carried on most trouble trucks, often in the cab section.
Design Features
Heavy duty, spring-loaded plastic buttons, keep the extended tool sections securely locked in position. As each section is extended and twisted slightly, the buttons pop into place, allowing working to be done with complete control and confidence.
Standard versus Heavy Duty
Both units use the same telescoping tube design. The tip sec­tion ofthe heavy duty units is slightly larger in diameter (11f4" versus 11;!6") so that each telescoping tube is slightly larger, resulting in a more rigid tool when fully extended, important where additional weight may be frequently encountered on maintenance tasks. Both tip sections employ time-proved Chance Epoxiglas, the unicellular foam-core material where the epoxy reinforced fiberglass wall is built around the foam core to prevent any moisture trapping voids that could build up between foam and tool.

When space is extremely limited for truck storage, a 23 ft. Telescoping Tool that compacts to 4 ft. is available as Catalog No. C4031739.

Telescoping Measuring Disconnect Tool
Telescoping Measuring Disconnect Tool

• One tool does it all
• English AND Metric Scales
Application
Certified to OSHA dielectric requirements (Sub-part V, section 1926.951) and tested per ASTM FI826-00, this full-function Telescoping Tool does more than separate measuring sticks and disconnect tools. To measure pole heights and conductor clearances from the ground, this single tool is marked with both English and Metric scales.
Disconnect head supplied for operating switches and cutouts is removable. End fitting on insulated top section accepts other Universal Tool Accessories for various tasks near energized conductors ... all from the ground:

  • Prune trees 
  • Clean conductors
  • Replace open-link fuses
  • Spray aerosols
  • Brush paint
  • Replace light bulbs
  • Remove pole cover-up
  • Gauge conductor sizes

Design Features
Measuring scales are easy-to-read, large black figures silk­screened on Chance orange fiberglass sections. English scales are marked with each I-foot increment designated in a box, each inch in bold numbers and half-inches designed by intermediate bars. Metric scales similarly display meters, decimeters and centimeters.
A positive spring-loaded locking-button mechanism and plug feature in each section prevent separation of the tool.
Once snapped into place, buttons securely lock sections into position. There's no worry about an unexpected tool retraction.
Operation
To extend tool to length needed, first pull out top section and rotate it until button engages in next section. For measuring aerial distances, continue this process until tip reaches height desired. Then set butt of tool on ground and read scale at eye level for exact distance of tip above ground. To retract, depress button of largest section first, rotate it to disengage and collapse section. Continue this process taking the next smaller section in turn.

Tool's top end section is insulated for maximum protection. There are no moisture­trapping voids between foam and tool wall because the tool wall is built around the foam.

Heavy Duty Adjustable Sticks
Heavy Duty Adjustable Sticks
  • Two-section telescoping tool
  • Two sizes and three styles

For substations, close-clearance worksites
Clearly marked at each I-foot extension lock, one of these tools can replace as many as eight+ single-length hotsticks. Especially for such tight confines as substations, these adjustable sticks can be stored in standard-length cannis­ters and avoid the difficulties of working extra-long sticks through busswork structures.
Heavy-duty construction
Classified as Heavy-Duty due to its large (1-1/4"-diameter) insulated top section and 1-1/2"-O.D. epoxy-reinforced fiberglass base tube, this design also features:
• 24" overlap at usable-length extremes
In each size, a 2-foot section ofthe Epoxiglas® foam-core top section remains inside the base section at the longest locked, usable length. Also at the shortest locked length, the insulated top section extends a full 2 feet beyond the base.
• Easy-to-operate yet rugged mechanism High-strength-plastic buttons - same as those in other proven Chance telescoping tools - keep these tools locked at each length. As the top section is simply extended and twisted, the lock button pops into place. For one worker to quickly adjust the length, a convenenient alignment dot at each I-ft. setting on the insulated section matches another dot at the top of the base section.

Power-Fuse Lift Stick
Power-Fuse Lift Stick

• Flag-Hoisting Principle
The Chance Power-Fuse Lift Stick tool removes and installs power fuse holders weighing up to 50 pounds. It is equipped with an arrangement of ropes and pulleys that permit the operator to lower and raise a power fuse holder in much the way a flag is handled on a flagpole. The operator has complete control of the fuse holder at all times, and doesn't have to balance and lift dead weight as must be done with the fuse on the end of the hookstick.

• Fuse Mount Supports Tool
During the removal and replacement of fuse holders, the fuse mount supports both the weight ofthe fuse holder and the tool. The pole hangs free while the operator automatically steadies it during the raising or lowering operation. Only during the actual open­ing and closing ofthe power fuse does the operator support the weight of the tool. A disconnect prong is located on the bottom ferrule of the tool.

• Soundly Constructed
While this tool is soundly constructed to support heavy fuse holders (up to 50 pounds); it is relatively light in weight. The Epoxiglas® pole is tested to assure its insulating strength. Operating lines are polypropylene rope. Carrier bands and shepherd hook attachments are coated with plastisol.

How To Remove A Power Fuse - Hook carrier prong into the eye on the inverted lower end offuse holder. Lift the fuse holder out of the contact trunnions, then lower carrier.

WARNING! Operating lines must be kept clean and dry to avoid dangerous current flow in the rope.

How to Order - Select one of the Power Fuse Lift Sticks from Table 1, based on the desired pole length.
