A New Wall Bracket.

The same steady demand for high insulation, which has led to the production of good weather-proof wires, has also resulted in bringing out a finer quality of insualtors and better means of supporting them. The latest of these improved supporting devices, shown in the accompanying cut, is called the "Springfield Bracket" and is manufactured by the Great Western Electric Supply Company. Being made of malleable iron with a ribbed arm and a hollow screw, it is very light, strong and tough. The split screw has a slight give to it and grips the insulator tightly. The wall plate is also novel in design, being so shaped as to give a large spread with very little metal. The makers have in preparation other forms of malleable iron brackets embodying the same good features as this one.
