Tagging Devices Designed for Utility Applications

Rauckman Utility Products' RUP HOLDTAG is used while working on utility poles to provide a visual warning against accidental manual operation of the devices such as disconnect switches. It is available in two models: R-TD and R-TD2. Both are molded from a specially blended elastomer allowing them to remain functional during the most frigid or sweltering weather.

In addition to non-tracking properties RUP HOLDTAG has a UL-94 flame-retardant classification of V-0 and ultra-violet stabilizers ensure that both models last for many years of service. R-TD2 model comes with a dual-head clip for attaching a hold card. Both models are easy to install using a disconnect (switch) stick. Their shape of the hooks can be changed in the field for easy landing.
