TESCO Socket Safety Clip
Catalog No. 301

TESCO's Socket Safety Clip has been designed to give meter technicians a way to temporarily reassure that a hot socket will not affect a faulty meter socket jaw. The danger zone of a meter socket jaw is 5 lbs. of holding force. At 5 lbs. arcing can occur, resulting in a more serious problem, failure, or electrical fire. The Socket Safety Clip improves the holding force of a meter socket jaw to close to 20 lbs., and can withstand temperatures beyond 400 degrees. This temporary solution simply clips around the jaws of a meter socket until the socket can be replaced.

The TESCO Socket Safety Clip gives utilities an alternate option to disconnecting the service. The Socket Safety Clip is intended for one-time use, and is recommended for each jaw, regardless of the quantity of faulty jaws per meter socket.

Note: TESCO Socket Safety Clips are a temporary solution when repair is needed. The Socket Safety Clips can remain installed on good meter sockets for improving the holding force. The Socket Safety Clips are intended for one-time use only.
