To permit hot-line work with a nylon-strap ratchet hoist, a properly applied link stick insulates the hoist from an energized conductor. The hoist link stick is a 1-1/4"-diameter Epoxiglas pole with a steel hook on one end and a butt swivel on the other.
To apply the link stick, attach the hook of the stick to a wire grip using the hotstick eye to operate the hook. Complete the application by connecting the nylon-strap hoist to the link stick butt swivel and to a pole or crossarm.
