"This Hemingray pony insulator meets the demand for a double petticoat insulator for rural lines. Its double petticoat feature makes it popular for rural lines where fog and high humidity prevail."

"It has an even longer leakage path than the No. 9; indeed, as long as that in many larger insulators. However, its lightness and the production economy of its design allow it to remain in the cost range desirable for rural telephone line construction."
