Standard model internal and external shotgun sticks utilize a full view side break hook (hook pivots in the horizontal plane in relation to the hook release trigger).
Add the -BBH designation to any shotgun stick either internal or external to specify a bottom break hook (hook pivots in the vertical plane in relation to the hook release trigger).
The External / Internal Rod Shotgun Hot Stick comes equipped with a user adjustable plastisol coated non-breakable metal hanger and a rubber end cap.
Spline Torque Bar
- Product Dimensions: 1⁄4” Dia. x 18”
- Product Weight: 1 lb
The Spline Torque Bar allows an operator to apply increased torque at a safe distance to insulated shotgun stick applications. Tool consists of foam filled insulated fiberglass with a foam grip for operator comfort. Specially designed universal end is precision CNC machined from aluminum grade bar stock for superior strength.
Female Socket Adapter
- Product Dimensions: 1⁄2” Dia. x 2.5”
- Product Weight: 1 lb
MS-USSA-FSA is a 1⁄2” female socket adapter attachment for 1 1⁄4” dia. shotgun stick. Manufactured from chrome plated steel for superior corrosion resistance over the life of a tool.
External rod shotgun sticks are engineered to provide the strength required to safely and properly perform a wide range of in-field lineman tasks yet maintain light weight necessary for easy use and maneuverability. Every external rod shotgun stick interior is filled with a high performance closed cell foam to prevent water ingress. The External Rod Shotgun Stick utilizes two external rod guides to assure a smooth opening and closing operation when the stick is in use. The rod guide closest to the operator is over-sized to permit a solid grip on the stick without interfering with the rod operation. The operating hook end is manufactured from stainless steel for maximum strength when pulling, pushing or twisting stubborn equipment.
Even the patented Blue Stripe is positioned on the shotgun stick to assist the operator. When the Blue Stripe is facing up the stainless steel hook end will open downward. Accidental equipment drops are minimized with this visual reminder.
Every external rod shotgun stick is manufactured from the highest quality electrical grade fiberglass and meet or exceed all applicable industry performance criteria including ASTM F711, IEC 855, OSHA Sub. R Section 1910.269 (J) and OSHA Sub. V Section 1926.951(d).
The shotgun or clamp stick is used for applying devices, such as clamps, to electrical lines or conductors and removing devices there-from. The stick includes an elongated support rod having an insulating head at one end and a movable actuating handle at the other end thereof. An operating rod extends from the handle and is slidably received within the insulating head. The operating rod is connected to a clamping mechanism which is slidably disposed within the head whereby actuation of the handle causes linear movement of the operating rod for causing a corresponding movement and actuation of the clamping mechanism.
- Tough thermoplastic head ferrule and EZ-Grip plastic hand grip
- External Rod Clamp sticks are constructed of closed cell foam-filled tubular fiberglass in accordance with ASTM-F711
- Hook operating rod is made of solid 3/8” diameter fiberglass and mounted on exterior of tool for easy wipe-down prior to use
- Heavy rubber end cap
- Heavy duty long-lasting spring
- Hanger hook molded in head

Determine the Correct Protection Level, To evaluate Fire Retardant clothing materials in order to measure the heat transferred through the fabric, two values are calculated: Arc Thermal Performance Value (ATPV)...the minimum energy causing the predicted onset of second-degree burns and Heat Attenuation Factor (HAF)...the percentage of total energy of the arc that the fabric prevents from passing through, OSHA requires that each employer must assess the potential hazards in the work environment and determine the appropriate clothing materials using ASTM PS57-97. Always do a hazard assessment. You will need to know electrical system voltage, fault current available, number of phases, Arc time duration, estimated Arc gap, minimum distance from the Arc, and Arc configuration.
