Figure 1- Wire Tongs with saddles and wire tong blocks clamp on holding stick.

Figure 2 - Wire Tong with saddles and swivel wire tong band on lift stick.

NOTE:
(1) SUPPORTS - Maximum recommended load for Saddles is 800 pounds. The Lever Lift will exceed the strength of Wire Tongs when load is properly applied in line with the pole.
(2) WORKING LOADS - Any elevated structure requires an analysis in determining the load. When calculations are impractical or unnecessary and a pole is slightly higher than neighboring poles, it may be sufficient to use the total weight of the span on each side as the maximum working load. This does not apply to hilltop structures where special analysis must be made to determine the load. When the working load is greater than that given in the table for a particular Wire Tong, it will be necessary to use double Wire Tongs with double-type lever lift, or use a larger Wire Tong.
(3) EPOXIGLAS® WORKING LOADS - The maximum working loads given for Epoxiglas Wire Tongs are based on a pole deflection of approximately one inch when used in the manner shown. The cantilever values, with a safety factor of more than two, are: 1-1/2" - 375 ft.-lb. 2" - 900 ft.-lb. 2-1/2" - 1500 ft.-lb. 3" - 2500 ft.-lb.

Wire Tong Specifications
Wire Tongs

Chance Wire Tongs have many applications for moving and holding live conductors clear of the working area, for flat crossarm and/or ridge pin-construction, on horizontal post insulator struc­tures, all types of suspension insulator lines, as auxiliary arm braces, and in EHV construction for brace pole or ladder positioning guides.
A whole family of clamps, attachments, saddles and lever lifts allow the wire tongs to be adapted specifically to the mechanical requirements of various maintenance jobs.
Chance Wire Tongs are made with Epoxiglas® poles. The castings are made of heat treated aluminum alloy, separated by bronze wear rings.
The wide range jaws on the head can be clamped tightly on the conductor by turning the stick from a position beyond the minimum working clearances (see top of page). A large head is available on two sizes of tongs where extremely large conductors are encountered.

Wire Tong Swivel
Wire Tong Swivel

When two wire tongs are hooked side-by-side on a conductor, that portion of the conductor between the tong heads may kink, because the weight of the conductor pushes down on the lift tong and pulls outward on the holding tong. By attaching the swivel to the lift tong and the holding tong hooked into the clevis attachment, there is only one tong hooked on the conductor, and since the clevis pivots to permit the tongs to assume correct positions, there is no kinking of the conductor.

Lever Lift Wire Tong Support - Aluminum Base
Lever Lift Wire Tong Support

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 a total 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 ofthe Lever Lift for attaching the lower rope blocks, will rotate on the same pin that holds the wire tong(s), permitting freedom of movement.

Dual Auxiliary Arm
Dual Auxiliary Arm

To upgrade the dual auxiliary arm for 34 kV applications add three M48057 insulators to the fork type wireholders or replace the lower voltage wireholders with three M480515 wireholders.
All of the auxiliary arm wireholders are the self-latching type. As the conductor is lowered into the wireholder, it trips a safety latch locking the conductor in to the wireholder. The latch must be swiveled with an insulated hand tool to release the conductor.

The Dual Auxiliary Arm is designed for use where a changeout of poles, crossarms or insulators is necessary; the standard Chance Epoxiglas®tools are lightweight and easily rigged. On regular construction, or alley arm construction, this tool can be used as a side arm. Movable wireholders can be spaced for minimum conductor travel from the crossarm to the temporary arm, yet the arm is long enough for use as a lifting arm with the use of three standard Chance Wiretongs.
When the Dual Auxiliary Arm is used on voltages above 15 kV, additional wireholder insulation must be used; and when the arm is to support energized conductors, during rain, or for a period of time when unforeseen rain could be possible, it is recommended that insulators be added to the wireholders for added protection against tracking on the arm. It is also recommended that when the arm is to be left up overnight or during a period of possible rain, the arm should be wiped down with a silicone-treated cloth.

Anew D-shaped buckle on the strap free end adds speed and convenience. Hanging a temporary conductor support with this innovation involves just hooking the buckle in the clasp on bracket and cinching the strap with the ratchet handle.
Easy operation, replacement for chain binders
With a strap-type ratchet-action mount rather than a chain binder, these temporary conductor supports otherwise are the same as on shown above. The strap and ratchet assembly may be ordered alone for retrofit, below.
Polyester strap offers advantage of less stretch than nylon for this application. With 10,000-lb. rated tensile strength, 2"-wide strap comes in 44" length to fit most structures. Wide handle opening on rapid-action ratchet permits easy operation, even with rubber gloves and leather protectors.
Applications
Epoxiglas® insulated temporary conductor supports are used to hold energized distribution conductors during replacement of poles or repair and replacement of pole-top and stand-off insulators.
Fork-type wireholder accepts up to I"-diameter conductor. Working load: 150 lb. per wireholder on T4001939 only.
For systems higher than 15 kV or when the tool is to support an energized conductor overnight or during periods of expected rain, M48057 insulators should be added to the wireholders (see above).

Designed for special application
Especially for energized changeout of insulators on distri­bution running-corner poles, this tool adds efficiency. In combination with a strap hoist, the Corner Restraint Bracket Tool helps control each phase conductor while insulators are changed.
Throughout maintenance procedures, the bracket helps restrain the conductor while repairs are made. It also acts as a load restraint for the hoist to pull the conductor back in for reconnection to the insulator string.
Simple, practical hot-line procedure
For maintenance by hotsticks or rubber-glove techniques, the Corner Restraint Bracket assists in isolating the strap hoist from the pole, a potential ground. It also avoids cut­ting a short section from a poleguard cover-up or using (and possibly damaging) a rubber blanket as a pad between the strap and the pole.
To insulate the strap hoist, two 6"- or 12"-long link sticks con­nect the hoist's hooks to hot-line grips on the conductor. Pole­guards and rubber cover-up are required to isolate the phase being worked from ground and other phase potentials.
Maximum Load Rating: 2,000 lb. (900 kg.)
Epoxiglas@ member: 21f2" diameter, 6" clear length
Dual-pinlsingle-roller set-up lets you rig the bracket for mounting on either side of the pole. So strap al­ways rides on the roller, place roller on appropriate push-button pin.
Quick, easy mounting
The D-shaped buckle on the mounting strap free end adds speed and convenience. To hang the Corner Restraint Bracket, just hook the buckle over the clasp on the base and cinch the strap with the ratchet handle.

Bracket rigged on guy side of pole: Used where the conductor is pulled in only a short distance toward the pole.
Bracket rigged on conductor side of pole: Used where the conductor must be pulled in a considerable distance toward the pole.
