Need help repairing that underground telephone cable?

If you’re reading this post because a Backhoe cut a cable your at the right place. What your going to want is a underground splice enclosure by Preformed Line Products. Let’s check out a How-To video from our YouTube channel.

As you can tell it’s an easy repair, keep in mind you might need a tone and probe to locate each conductor in case the conductors are hard to identify. The part number for the 6 pair enclosure is 8006137 and the 12 pair is 8006039 and they are inexpensive. Don’t forget you’ll need the UY connectors and you might need a 10 to 15 foot piece of cable in case you don’t have extra slack to make you repair.

Don’t forget to always call before you dig…next time.

Fiber Optic Closure for Splicing

Designed with versatility in mind, the LightGuard (LG) 55 sealed closure from AFL offers a variety of solutions including repair, distribution splicing, grounding for Fiber-in-the-Loop applications, and for use as an isolation gap with armored cables.

Here’s a great look from our YouTube channel.

This closure accepts stranded loose tube, Uniflex or ribbon fiber cables in either armored or dielectric configurations and can be utilized in a butt or in-line configuration. The LG-55 closure incorporates a unique cable clamp design sealing the cable, allowing both of the cover halves to be removed without disturbing the contents. In addition, AFL’s Peel & Seal Grommet System is incorporated to ensure a tight fit on various cable diameters, fully sealing the closure and protecting the fiber while eliminating cumbersome tape and washers – making installation fast and easy.
