ARM GUY. - A guy wire running from one side of a crossarm to the next pole is called an "arm guy." Arm guys are used to counteract the forces on crossarms that have more wires dead-ended on one side than on the other (fig. 4-9).
STUB GUY. - A guy wire installed between a line pole and a stub pole on which there is no energized equipment is called a "stub guy" (fig. 4-10). A down guy is used to secure the stub pole. This type of guy is
