Hello All;

I have heard that guy wire clamps should be installed on guy wire a certian way.

Does it matter if the saddle holds the free end of the guy wire or the wire under tension between the tower and the anchor/insulator?

Yes, it does matter. I'll refer you to the Tower Talk archives "".

The short answer is that you want the saddle on the side going to the tower. Clamp capacity is
reduced about 40% by installing it backwards.
