1 Claim. (Cl. 174-211)
This invention relates to insulators, the pri
mary object being to provide insulators each of
inwardly from the point 1 to the seat 8, but it is
also curved downwardly from the center toward
each of its ends, thereby extending over and part
ly around an internal node 9 integral with and
contained within the cap. The ends of the slot,
which has been indicated at ID, are joined to the
seat 8 by upwardly inclined curved grooves ll
which is formed in a single piece of insulating
material, such as porcelain or the like, and which
are so constructed that when twist wires leading
from a cable to the main wires are inserted there
into, a portion of each twist or duplex wire will
be supported at a high point so as to maintain a
dry spot and preventing a “wet weather cross” or
forming continuations or extensions of the cen
