BREAK-SAFE® Load Break & Pick-up Tool

  • BREAK-SAFE® Load Break & Pick-up Tool

The BREAK-SAFE® is a jumper clamp that functions like a portable switch. It is designed to operate on overhead distribution lines in conjunction with a mechanical jumper.

The BREAK-SAFE® has three operating functions:

  • LOAD BREAK
  • LOAD PICKUP 
  • CONTINUOUS CURRENT DUTY

The BREAK-SAFE® is available with either a Floating or a Duckbill Head and comes in three models:

  • 15 kV / 300 amp
  • 27 kV / 300 amp
  • 46 kV / 200 amp

MINIMUM SAFE DISTANCE
In order to keep personnel at a safe distance, the BREAK-SAFE® is operated with an insulated fiberglass hot stick for load break and load pick-up functions.

The Yellow Safety Lock is also operated by a hot stick and helps prevent the tool from an unintended load break or pickup operation.
