July 15, 2009 -- The new series of transformer and URD connectors feature the new EZ Torque shear-head screws. With no special tools required, the EZ Torque series connectors are installed with an industry standard hex wrench. When tightened, the heads of the screws “break-away” once the proper torque has been applied. Our patent-pending shear-head design ensures that optimal torque has been achieved for both the transformer stud screw and the cable port screws. Once installed, screws are removable with the same hex wrench thus eliminating failures due to improper installation.
