Wireholders have a generous 1” opening to accept conductors up to 795 ACSR. Each wireholder has a one-way captive latch that must be released before the conductor can be removed.

Hot Arms are designed for temporary application on 15 kV circuits. In inclement weather or if the arms are left out overnight the addition of insulators on the wireholders is recommended. If insulators are installed these Hot Arms can be used on circuits up to 34.5 kV.
