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.
