Power Company Test Leads

A large multi-state Mid-West power company approached E-Z-Hook to see if we could manufacture custom leads using the copper blade version of our macro-hook test connectors, model XH and XHL. The leads would ultimately be used by plant technicians testing power and required a secure right angle bend on the hooks.

Included in the requirement was the ability to close the power circuit after checking that the hook connection was properly connected. We designed in a “key” concept they requested. It was built into the jumper, allowing the user to close the circuit after the connection was verified as good. Additionally we designed jumpers with a similar fused “key” for further security which was required in some test environments. In the end, E-Z-Hook created four variations of leads, some containing a 3 AMP, 250 Volt fuse.

Since 1956 E-Z-Hook has been making quality test products and accessories. Sure we have changed, grown, and added product lines. As required we have altered our manufacturing process to ensure our product line adheres to regulations such as REACH, ROHS, and the Dodd-Frank Conflict Mineral Act. We no longer operate out of a personal garage in Kentucky like we did in 1956, but in our own 24,000 square foot manufacturing plant in Arcadia, California. Instead of one person designing and making the products, we have a team of employees, many with over 25 years of experience.

WE HAVE CHANGED. WE HAVE GROWN. WE ARE DIFFERENT………

OR ARE WE REALLY JUST THE SAME?

It caught my attention while I was filing away old marketing materials that our marketing message was the same. How funny. In hearing this you might think, yikes, 60 years and still saying the same thing? Yes, in fact, 60 years and we are still saying the same thing. It’s not because our marketing department has been lazy, or ineffective, or void of fresh ideas. It’s because 60 years ago our marketing focus was on the attributes of our products. Those product attributes haven’t changed, and we are proud of that!

IMG_2342IMG_2338E-Z-Hook has a long history of working with clients who need assistance developing a custom product to fulfill their needs. From the outside the solutions was simple – a box. It was the inside components, which included fuses and switches, that made the little box more complicated.

Working closely with the client E-Z-Hook developed 3 separate prototypes that could work with the clients test jumper applications. The final solution addressed the clients’ needs for a Test Jumper Junction Box. The finished product used both standard and custom components. The design included a toggle switch or momentary switch that allowed fuse capabilities to be switched on or off with the various test applications.
In the end, the solution was “in the box”, a small plastic box. The device allowed the customer to supply their technicians with a simply solution which allowed them to easily amplify their testing capabilities.  A single custom solution provided a complete kit.
