Insulating lineman's pliers have composite, electrically insulating handles including a core having an inner body formed of a glass-fiber-reinforced polyester pultrusion and over-braided with glass-fiber-reinforced epoxy braided layers, the core being overmolded with an elastomeric grip. The core inner bodies of the handles have axial bores in one end thereof in which are press-fitted first ends of knurled coupling pins, the other ends of which are press-fitted in bores in the ends of the metal heads, which are pivotally interconnected and respectively define plier jaws.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
