Abstract : Several years of intensive effort resulted in the development of prelashing, which provides an improved labor saving method of installing aerial cable. With this method, a roller support is temporarily attached to each pole, the cable and strand are prelashed together and pulled into position under tension and transferred from their roller supports to their permanent attachments, the cable suspension clamps. Each pole need be climbed only twice and some of the trips up and down the line can be eliminated.
