The universal pole bracket is a piece of hardware most electrical field technicians tend to be familiar with, especially during the mounting of transmission and telecoms infrastructure. This simple tool is frequently used to support anchor clamps on transmission poles. 


This brief article's purpose is to shed more light on universal pole brackets. We will go through some of their main features, applications and conclude with tips regarding their installation. Ultimately, we will provide quality insights on what to consider if you decide to purchase this useful utility.

Features of universal pole brackets


Universal pole brackets are pieces of hardware usually mounted on a surface. In the majority of cases, these instruments are installed on poles, either by straps or by nuts and bolts, and they serve as a pillar upon which clamps and other cable connecting fittings are anchored. They are mostly made up of metal in the form of aluminum alloy that gives strength, rigidity, and high mechanical properties to the bracket. Relying on these sort of materials for manufacture prevent pole brackets from succumbing easily to corrosion even when exposed to the external elements. Pole line hardware novel design involves the inclusion of several apertures that make it able to terminate several cables. Besides, this way of designing the tool makes it compatible with several cable mounting configurations such as wooden, concrete, or metal poles.

Application of universal pole brackets


Universal pole brackets have different utilizations. They are commonly applied in cable connecting fittings to support wire, conductor, cables (OPGW, ADSS, and others) in transmission line fittings. The application of these pieces of equipment is similar to that of anchor clamps. Here below, we have listed some of the situations, where universal pole brackets are employed:


  • At the end of poles for dead-end stay wires.
  • In jointed poles for double dead-end that require certain specific fittings.
  • In intermediary poles for double anchoring, that need fittings in angled passageways.
  • In distribution poles for triple dead-ends.
  • In strut poles arrangements for a double dead-end.
  • For securing multiple drops.
  • For cross-arm fastening.


Installation of a universal pole bracket


The installation of universal brackets on most surfaces is simple and requires nothing more than just a few tools. The set of instruments to be used depends on the manner of installation that is adopted. Currently, there are two principal methods of installation: 


  1. Straps: start by cutting two straps to the required length, after which buckles are attached to the end of each strap. Pass the strap through the top aperture of the UPB and around the pole. Fasten the belts and make sure grips the pole using the buckle until the desired tension is achieved. Finally, repeat the above process for the bottom aperture using the second strap.
  2. Nuts and Bolts: Here, holes are drilled into the pole before the UPB are attached to the surface using a bolt, nut and, washer. Fasten the nut and bolt with a spanner to make sure that the bracket is steady and does not move.


In conclusion, universal pole brackets are an everyday instrument that technicians install to ensure that the transmission infrastructure integrity remains the same irrespective of the forces (natural or human-made).
