The mechanical connection point for the power company's lines to my home is not good.
What is currently being used as a point of attachment is actually the metal strap that formerly braced the "house knobs" before the siding was replaced by a previous owner. I visited my local electrical supply house and they offered up a porcelain insulated "house knob" which, IIRC, had a 3/8" lag bolt thread about 2" in length. This does not seem to be adequate for supporting the 100 feet of utility line that exists from the street pole to the house. Can anybody offer up some links or suggestions as to where I can find a more substantial attachment device for the power lines? For sure this is not a job I will be tackling but replacing the siding is and the current attachment point and method is almost impossible to work around.
