kearney clamp????

Howdy:

Hoping that one or more of the experts on this Forum can explain/show me what a Kearney clamp is.

They are supposedly used (in a proper box) to connect two pieces of SER).

Having trouble finding a good pic.

Thanks for the help.

Kearney is a brand name, but you are probably looking for an application rather than brand. Go here: http://www.tnb.com/contractor/docs/b...mechanical.pdf
to see a sampling of what is out there.

The The Trade Slang site is a good reference for some of the unofficial terminology used in the electrical trade.

To answer Frenchy.

SER is 1/0 AL.
Comes into box with a proper cable clamp,
and need to go out other side of box, also with a proper cable clamp.

Thanks to the other posters for the URLs that help me to see what a Kearney clamp is.

Cheers,
s/Mike
