Tygard Line Ties

This 17-minute video demonstrates the superior capabilities of preformed line ties. Tests are conducted to determine how line-ties perform when distribution conductors break. The tests cover various line tensions, types of insulators, and types of conductor breaks. In all cases, Tygard preformed line ties perform better than hand-ties. Next, the video shows how to install and remove Tygard ties, by hand and with hot sticks.(Courtesy Hubbell)
