The Axis Hammerlock Ground Clamp is designed to simplify the grounding process, making it an essential tool for any lightning protection, electrical, or telecommunications system . Its innovative design allows for a fast and simple installation process that requires only a hammer, saving you time and money.
To install, simply insert the ground wire through the connector body and drive the Hammerlock onto the ground rod using a hammer. The plug should be level with the connector body to ensure a secure connection. This straightforward process can be completed three to five times faster than with a traditional Acorn or RCC clamp.
Prepare the Ground Rod and Wire: Ensure the ground rod and wire are clean and free of any dirt or debris. The ground rod should be properly positioned and the wire should be cut to the appropriate length.
Insert the Ground Wire: Take the Axis Hammerlock Ground Clamp and insert the ground wire through the connector body. The wire should be inserted from the bottom, up through the top of the clamp.
Position the Clamp: Position the Axis Hammerlock Ground Clamp onto the ground rod, ensuring the ground wire is properly seated within the clamp.
Drive the Clamp: Using a hammer, drive the Axis Hammerlock Ground Clamp onto the ground rod. Continue hammering until the plug is level with the connector body. This ensures a secure and reliable connection.
Check the Connection: Once the clamp is fully installed, check for a visual indication of a completed connection. This is a unique feature of the Axis Hammerlock Ground Clamp that provides assurance of a correct installation.
Final Inspection: Conduct a final inspection to ensure the clamp is securely attached to the ground rod and the wire is firmly held in place.
