Hot line workers using load break tools or operating heavy switches will often exceed the design limitations (pushing, pulling, or twisting) of standard telescopic sticks. Utility Solutions, Inc. specifically designed their new Heavy Duty Telescopic Stick for such applications.  All BLUE STRIPE® Telescopic sticks use an epoxy resin and feature a unique non-woven fiberglass construction process which creates a smooth durable surface that resists water absorption. The patented BLUE STRIPE® feature takes the hassle out of lining up buttons. • 38 TUS • May ‘16
