Comealongs and HiTemp® Comealongs (Grips) for ACSS, are stringing tools designed for pulling conductors up to initial sag tensions. If the required tension is greater than the rated tension of a single comealong, two or more comealongs should be used. When desired sag tension is reached, the conductor should be dead ended promptly and the comealong removed. Comealongs and HiTemp Comealongs must receive periodic maintenance. This practice should consist of a thorough cleaning with close inspection for nicked or rough conductor grooves, cracked body, bent eye bolts or damaged bail. The eyebolts should be kept clean and oiled. The conductor groove should be kept clean and dry. After each six-month-use and at the beginning of each job, all comealongs should be subjected to a pull test equal to its rated strength.
