The profiled copper alloy saddle mounts firmly on the lead sheath via the tinned copper mesh providing a solid and reliable bond. The saddle also provides a torque controlled bolted connection to a neutral or earth via a suitably sized copper cable (not included).
The cable armouring, if present, is also bonded to the lead sheath using tinned copper mesh and torque controlled worm drive clamps.
