Adjustable Insulator Adapter

These adjustable insulator adapter clamps securely to a tie-top insulator by tightening the take-up handles. Natural rubber cushions permanently molded to the adapter protect the porcelain and restrict the adapter from rotation. The XS-100-B block can be mounted in the adapter vertically and at various angles to facilitate stringing tangents and angles.

Using the AIA adapters and XS-100-B, reconductoring is possible using the “Never-An-Outage-System,” as the conductor can be energized while in the block. These AIA adapters and XS-100-B block combination can also be used for conventional stringing on crossarms, on new construction, and on vertical or horizontal post insulators.

  • For larger than 4 7/8″ or smaller than 2 1/8″ neck diameter insulators, other adapters are available on request. Also available is Model No. AIA-4 Special with 3/4″ hex head (instead of standard hand knob) ideal for use with hydraulic tools.
  • 2 models available: AIA-CF, AIA-J
  • Used for reconductoring on vertical tie-top post insulators
  • AIA-CF adjusts to fit most insulators with neck diameter for 2-1/8 in. through 3-1/2 in.
  • AIA-J adjusts to fit most insulators with neck diameter for 3-1/4 in. through 4-7/8 in.
  • Fits all Sherman + Reilly XS-100 Stringing blocks
