The DIAMOND Figure–8 Three Bolt Suspension Clamp is used in CATV and telephone aerial
construction to secure figure–8 aerial cable and multi–pair distribution wire to the pole. This Clamp has a patented jaw designed to grip the figure–8 messenger through the jacket. This feature eliminates the need to pre–strip the wire, and reduces the possibility of the cable separating from the messenger.
The bolts, nuts and lock washers are finished with DIAMOND’s quality galvanizing process for long, rust free life.
· Bolts, nuts and lock washers are made of high tensile strength steel, mechanically galvanized to meet ASTM specifications A153 and B695.
· Plates are made of high grade aluminum alloy, with a tensile strength of 45,000 P.S.I.
· Clamp will accommodate a 1/2" or 5/8" thru bolt (not furnished).
· Patented design allows clamp jaws to penetrate the messenger jacket and grip the bare wire, eliminating the need to pre–strip the messenger.
· R.E.A. accepted.
