Product Description

OPGW comealongs are stringing tools designed for pulling optical ground wire 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 (refer to installation instructions). When desired sag tension is reached, the cable should be dead ended promptly and the comealong removed.

Comealongs must receive periodic maintenance. This practice should consist of a thorough cleaning with close inspection for nicked or rough cable grooves, cracked body, bent eye bolts or damaged bail. The eyebolts should be kept clean and oiled. The cable 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. If any damage is found, the comealong should be disposed of or sent to AFL for rework and recertification.
