Two Slater brackets with the insulators and hot clamp perches as found. One bracket can be installed anywhere on a crossarm, the other is installed from the end as far as pins would allow. A newer brass perch, held in place with a common U bolt; conductor wire attached by a special clamp style bolt. The older steel type clamp conductor wire is held in place around the neck of the insulator. As is my usual luck, both CP insulators have damage - always right above the embossing. It must be a weak spot in the manufacture.........
