Its patent pending RockSocket #RS71 which is the 1st and only tool of its kind designed to safely install rock anchors and Its welded out of thick strong steel.
If you have ever had the pleasure of building powerlines on top of solid rock terrain then you already know what installing and tightening a rock anchor entails.
Until now the only method was to stick a cheater pipe or rock bar into the head of the anchor and walk circles around the anchor while your pole buddy has to walk behind you as he swings a sledge hammer hitting the head of the moving anchor until it gets tight. This operation is usually taking place in very rough terrain or down in a hole with endless opportunities for slips and falls, especially if your the one tugging on a cheater pipe as hard as you can while walking circles. This is when you usually pull muscles you didnt even know you had as well.
This process will also bend your anchor rod over and create many opportunities for busted lips from losing your grip on the pipe or getting your hand smacked by a sledge hammer accidentally. I've personally had both of those happen.
With the RockSocket,
You simply slide the socket over the anchor head, install the safety pin and start tightening the anchor. It can be used by 1 or 2 men at a time and provides a very smooth and controlled method of installation. The safety pin is incorporated only to prevent the tool from slipping off the anchor head and causing injury to the operator. As you can see the RockSocket allows you to torque down the anchor without bending the rod and has a 1/2" thick steel strike plate on top. Until now there was no method available for 2 men to apply torque to an anchor at the same time, and after several months of field testing I can personally tell you it's much more ergonomic for a 2 man team to tighten one down. We were able to get our anchors very tight with what felt like half the strain on our bodies and we never had to change positions to accomplish this.
The RockSocket mitigates several different hazards that have always been present for such a common task in our industry while making each jobsite a little safer.
Designed to hold up to 30 box connectors but will also accommodate endless other tools & hardware that we need on every pole. It has a chainsaw slot on the backside because all linemen love to just slide our chainsaw bars down between our tool boards or bags and the bucket liner, which quickly tears up whatever fabric it's rubbing against. The BoxLocker fixes that issue. It has oval hook holes to allow for installation and removal from bucket hooks without having to tilt the tool, preventing items from falling out.
This tool keeps us from having to carry connectors in the unsafe and unorganized manner we all have until now, piled up in our hands, hardhats, shirt tails, and shirt pockets. With the BoxLocker we can easily carry it in 1 hand down to restock it from our truck bins or storerooms. For all you servicemen out there working all alone, it will definitely cut down on wasted trips up and down while having to climb in and out of the bucket for just another connector as well. We designed the front slots to be as large as possible to allow connectors to be retrieved easily while wearing rubber gloves.
Just like all of our tools, this is manufactured out of extreme duty light weight plastic that designed to last your whole career.
If one breaks from normal use we will replace free.
Available in 4 and 6 slot configurations which both have the SawSlot on the backside.
This is just a neat little gadget that every hand on the jobsite needs hanging from their belts, toolbags or up in the bucket. We made our first run of these a few months ago to test out in the field and every lineman in the yard had to have one. Its specifically designed to be a single handed operation to remove and replace rolls of tape. This is possible due to the precisely drilled off center hole in the bottom plate, once a roll of tape is either lifted upward or removed it will tilt just enough for the roll to slide on/off one handed with ease. It is made out of stainless steel cable and 1/4" thick aluminum plate which can take a beating from job to job, storm to storm, and still be by your side. To back that up I've preformed a multi week long 155lb vertical load weight test on the cable and crimps we used on this tool without failure. A light duty carabiner is included with each one as well. To go a step further we also polished each aluminum plate to ensure no sharp edges could wear holes in any clothing or gear. We all know how hard it is to keep up with a roll of tape, much less having to pull off your gloves just to dig it out of your pants pockets 50x a day. The QuickDraw puts an end to both of these daily issues.
Next up is the KeyBiscuit. Its the only cotter key keeper and is extremely lightweight. Very convenient to keep clipped to tool bags and in the bucket using the light duty carabiner included with each one.
New tool release. The 4-Banger. Rated for 65lbs and tested at 325lbs of vertical load for 8 weeks straight. Its designed work in many different applications. When used with a single bucket hook it turns that one single hanging point into 4, providing much more options to hold our tools and gear. It can be used with carabiners or slings as well. From in the bucket to up a pole or tower, the 4-Banger will make our jobs easier while keeping our gear secure.
The clip cup holder is designed to securely slide over the skirting that protects the controls on your bucket. It's small size and durable material is a perfect product for aerial equipment that battle tight working conditions!
made of durable polycarbonate/acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (PC+ABS)+UV
The Wedge Ejector is a one of a kind wedge removal tool that is the fastest in the field. Before the Wedge Ejector a Linemen had two choices- blow your forearms out knocking off wedges, or fumble around loading and reloading a shoot off clip.
But now with this patent pending technology removing a pin fired powder actuated wedge has never been simpler. Simply lay the body of the Wedge Ejector on the flush side of the C-member with the drive bolt pointing toward the narrow end of the wedge and apply either your crescent wrench, linemen wrench or impact gun.
Wedge ejector is designed to easily fit your nut runner socket for fast and easy use. It is constructed of a rigid 3/8” steel body, complete with a powder coated finish. It’s oversized ergonomic handle allows for easy use while working in rubber gloves while removing wedges. Wedge Ejector should aid in the removal of most yellow fired shelled wedges from sizes 4/0 to 715.
