TESCO Announces New Hot Socket Gap Indicator

Bristol, PA – TESCO has developed a new tool to help you determine if a meter socket has become worn-out and unsafe for continued use. The TESCO Hot Socket Gap Indicator (Catalog No. 300) is quick, easy-to-use and has a rugged, non-conductive ABS insulated shell. The tool engages the jaws of a meter socket and will indicate a gap or significant loss of jaw pre-load. Total estimated time of testing four jaws is less than 30-seconds. Even minor gaps can result in electrical arcing, resulting with a more serious problem, failure, or electrical fire.
