called a "head guy" (fig. 4-8). Lines on steep hills are
normally constructed with head guys to counteract the
downhill strain of the line.
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

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

often installed to obtain adequate clearance for guy
wires extending across streets or highways.
PUSH GUY.A push guy, or a push brace, is used

When it is impossible to obtain sufficient right-of-way

The push guy is constructed from an old power pole and
a special bracket called a push brace attachment.
A crossarm is a specially treated wooden member
that is secured to a pole and used to mount various types
