HD Electric Co.'s FT-1 fuse tool assists in the removal and installation of most cutout-type overhead fuse links. The fuse tool has a 7" fuse receiver that provides increased safety and greater control by keeping the fuse link securely in place during removal and installation. The built-in switch hook is then used to close in the fuse link.

By using the fuse tool, line crews are able to quickly and safely remove and install most cutout type overhead fuse links found in overhead distribution systems.
