  • Patent number: 11031755
    Abstract: A shotgun stick for use with grounding devices is provided. An example shotgun stick includes a housing and a drive shaft supported within the housing. The shotgun stick further includes a torque connector coupled with a first end of the drive shaft that receives a grounding clamp assembly. The shotgun stick includes a motor assembly operably connected to a second end of the drive shaft. In an automatic mode, the motor assembly drives the drive shaft so as to actuate the grounding clamp assembly received by the torque connector. The shotgun stick also includes a manual locking mechanism. In a manual mode, the manual locking assembly locks the drive shaft to at least a portion of the housing so as to preclude rotation of the drive shaft and allow manual actuation of the grounding clamp assembly received by the torque connector.

  • Publication number: 20180266913
    Abstract: A glove inspection device (20) is provided for testing the integrity of a protective glove (10). The device (20) includes a base (22) having a glove mount feature (24) configured to sealingly receive a cuff (18) of a protective glove (10). A pressure sensor (26) is operably connected to the base (22) and is configured to monitor an internal pressure of a protective glove (10) mounted on the glove mount feature (24). A user interface (28) is operably connected to the pressure sensor (26) to provide a representation of the internal pressure monitored by the pressure sensor (26).

  • Publication number: 20130237071
    Abstract: A ground clamp (10) is provided for use with a ball stud (12) having a shaft (14) that terminates in a spherical end (16), and includes a body (20), a first jaw (22), and a second jaw (24). The first jaw (22) includes two fingers (40) that define a slot (44) through which the shaft (14) can extend when the ball stud is inserted into the damp. The second jaw includes a laterally extending platform (50) and a rib (52) extending from the platform to be located within the slot with the jaws in a closed position. The second jaw has a concave clamp surface (54) defined in the platform (50) and the rib (52) that is engageable with the spherical end as the second jaw moves to the closed position to guide the jaws and the spherical end into proper alignment.

  • Publication number: 20070119608
    Abstract: A hot stick of a type used by electrical lineworkers is equipped with an adaptor, which is mounted to one end of the hot stick. In one contemplated embodiment, the adaptor comprises a connector, which coacts with a connector mounted to the end of the hot stick so as to mount the adaptor to the end of the hot stick, and the adaptor comprises another connector, which is adapted to coact with a connector provided on a tool so as to connect the tool to the adaptor, and with light-emitting diodes for illuminating a tool so connected. In an alternative embodiment, the adaptor comprises a receptacle, which receives the end of the hot stick so as to mount the adaptor to the end of the hot stick, and the adaptor comprises a connector, which is adapted to coact with a connector provided on a tool so as to connect the tool to the adaptor, and with light-emitting diodes for illuminating a tool so connected.

  • Publication number: 20060042812
    Abstract: A rubber insulating blanket of a type used by workers, such as electrical lineworkers and industrial electricians, to cover live electrical conductors, apparatus, or circuits, so as to protect themselves against electrical shock hazards, is generally square or otherwise generally rectangular, so as to have two longitudinal edges and two transverse edges. The blanket is provided with four handles, each of which is located at the middle of a separate edge of the blanket. If the blanket has eyelets located near the middles of the longitudinal edges, the eyelets so located are located between the handles located at those same portions. Being unitary with the remainder of the blanket and having outer portions projecting outwardly from the edges where the handles are located, the handles do not interfere with rolling of the blanket, as for storage of the blanket in a canister.
