Insulator. In order to eliminate the liability of trouble on high potential circuits due to the breakage of insulator pins the form of insulator and pin illustrated by Figs. 1 and 2 herewith has been devised by Fred M. Locke, of Victor, N. Y. The engravings are practically self-explanatory; the insulator has two petticoats, one at each end, and a hole all the way through the centre, so that the pin may be slipped through it and supported at both ends, as shown in Fig. 2. The upper petticoat of the insulator is provided with an eaves trough having drain spouts. The wire groove is located near the top of the lower petticoat, as indicated at b, in Fig. 1. Patent No. 767,948.
