The Telescoping Hot Sticks come equipped with a universal spline end and hot stick probe. In addition, the Telescoping Hot Sticks come with the tip lock operational feature standard. The operator can simply lock the end section into second to last section if necessary to obtain maximum flexural/tensile strength from the extended stick to open/close stubborn equipment. Remember when utilizing the tip lock feature the operator will lose approximately 5 foot of extended reach.
The Telescoping Hot Stick Blue Stripe fiberglass stick is the newest generation of fiberglass hotstick to enter the electrical market. The stick has been engineered so additional fiberglass has been added where the highest strength is required and removed where it is not required. The result is a telescopic stick able to withstand the rigors of line operations and still offer the utmost in lightweight for portablility. The outside surface texture provides a positive gripping surface even in wet conditions. All operating buttons are CNC machined from very high strength and water resistant engineered solid polymer rod to provide maximum mechanical strength.
All fiberglass hot sticks come equipped with the Blue Stripe patented feature. Simply align the blue stripes and all button and holes automatically match. No wasted time twisting and turning sections to get buttons to lock into place.
All fiberglass hot sticks also come equipped with the new EZ tip lock button replacement feature. No more complete stick disassembly to replace the tip lock button which usually winds up as a complete section 1 fiberglass changeout. The EZ tip lock button replacement feature permits the tip lock button to be replaced easily and rapidly WITHOUT disassembly of the entire stick, a costly and time consuming operation.
Hot sticks are manufactured from the highest grade electrical rated fiberglass and meet or exceed all applicable industry performance criteria including ASTM F711, ASTM F1826, and OSHA 1926.951(d).

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.
