A split-bolt by any other name....
For years in and around Texas, I've heard split-bolt connectors referred to as:
Curnies, Cernies, Curnys, Kernies, Kearnies, Kearneys, etc....and seen them written up on service tickets in all these spellings....but I can't find a "correct" spelling for this term.
Technical incompetence is NOT a sales tool....
Always called them Burndies. I think that they were the first manufacturer of them. Hard to remember that far back.
Burndy was the first to manufacture split bolt connectors http://www.burndy.com/industries/utility
Kearney Engineers formed in 1926 by James R. Kearney. http://www.cooperindustries.com/cont...r_history.html
Ive only ever heard them called split bolt connectors.
Mineralac straps is another one..... of course...everyone calls them that....sort of.... mineral lack mineral lax....
But Ive never seen anyone spell the name correctly...... or call them stand off straps which is what I call them.
We all drink the koolaid.. Just that some of us prefer different flavors.
Lots O Labor
How much labor goes with that Kerney (split bolt)?.............
