Crossarm Guards are available in two different styles: the 1370 pin type and the 1371 post type. They are used to prevent tie wires from contacting crossarms during hot line operations. Two different tie downs are provided: a neoprene and a polypropylene rope. Both are secured in the slots provided in the eye fitting. The post type model has an automatic gap closer which covers the insulator slot opening over the end of the arm.
