Georgia Power resolves transmission line cross arm attachment failures

Buddy BushingMany transmission lines have had hardware failures due to wind-induced vibrations. Over extended periods of time, the wind-driven rubbing between line insulator hardware and the associated cross arm attachment points can cause total failure of the cross arm at the point of attachment.

In some cases, this could result in line failure or multiple arm replacements, which can be very expensive.

In many cases, over time, the clevis pin can completely erode through the attachment of the arm.
