The purpose of this guide is to present in one document sufficient details of present day methods, materials, and equipment to outline the basic considerations necessary for maintaining safe and adequate control and grounding of conductors during stringing operations. References are given for those desiring more detailed information. Because the terminology used for many hardware items and for many stringing terms varies from place to place, a list of definitions is included to provide correlation and clarification of the terms most commonly employed.This guide provides general recommendations for the selection of methods, equipment, and tools that have been found to be practical for the stringing and grounding of overhead transmission line conductors, overhead groundwires and fiber optic cables. The guide also includes a comprehensive list of definitions for equipment and tools used in stringing and for stringing terms commonly employed. This guide does not address special conductors such as those used for river and canyon crossing. These conductors may be custom designed and may often require special considerations.
