Utility safety: TESCO has developed a new tool to help you determine if a meter socket has become worn-out and unsafe for continued use. The TESCO Hot Socket Gap Indicator (Catalog No. 300) is quick, easy-to-use and has a rugged, non-conductive ABS insulated shell.

The tool engages the jaws of a meter socket and will indicate a gap or significant loss of jaw pre-load. Total estimated time of testing four jaws is less than 30-seconds. Even minor gaps can result in electrical arcing, resulting with a more serious problem, failure, or electrical fire.

TESCO (The Eastern Specialty Company) is a manufacturer and service provider to the Electrical Utilities industry, owned by, run by, and staffed by engineers. Engineers who have spent the last twenty-five years working to address and solve the toughest metering problems; whether they were equipment problems, system problems or regulatory issues. One of TESCO’s continued strengths is the company’s ability to success­fully work with our utility clients in a variety of capacities. As customers’ needs have changed and evolved, TESCO has diversified and added to the services we offer this unique market segment.
