Wire Tongs


Tested per OSHA & ASTM F711

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 page 2202). A large head is available on two sizes of tongs where extremely large conductors are encountered.

For working loads of Chance Wire Tongs as an aid to selecting the proper size for a particular application, see pages 2202 and 2203 (Note 3).
