URD Cap Stand™ – Portable Insulated Cap Holder

The patent-pending URD Cap Stand™ attaches to the lip of underground padmount transformers and switchgear to securely hold insulated caps. It safely stores insulated caps that are accessible using a shotgun stick so workers remain outside their minimum approach distance (MAD) and caps stay clean.

Lineworkers often use a glove bag, the ground, or another worker when removing and installing protective caps. Caps can become contaminated and compromise the loadbreak elbow connection. The machined URD Cap Stand™ is made from a high-visibility yellow polymer that cradles the lip of padgear. Adjustable legs can adapt to any size lip up to 2 inches thick. Smooth plastic arms securely hold insulating caps up to 38kV.

The URD Cap Stand™ has a standard shotgun eye (USUC-002/003 only) and can be installed and removed “loaded” with loadbreak caps. The unique cradle design allows it to slide left or right to stay clear of underground cable.

About the Inventor

Like several of our products, this tool was created by a lineman. . . for linemen.
