Is anyone familiar with crimps to mend neutral support cable, midspan?
I know our poco uses them, they look like a tube maybe 6" long and they crimp them a pile of times. Any idea what their called and if you can get them for a burndy md6-8?

1 split bolt. bend your neutrals around it after tightening it.

Yeah. They're called full-tension splices. Some are a foot or so long. They take about 40-billion crimps to get end-to-end on them. I know I have one laying around. I'll try to get a pic if I don't freeze to death.

Edit: Screw that. It's too damn cold out. You get the idea though.

I saw one going to a traffic light in town that they just used two chicken catchers (wedge clamps) to put the neutral back together.

Around south central PA we use tubes that have grips and a spring inside, we call them pickles. The telephone companies and poco both use them for splices.
