Here's another green pole with the 1980s updated chicken wings.

I still wonder when they stopped using these brackets...but I'm guessing 1994-5.

These were always neat little brackets, but they do have some design flaws unfortunately. Mainly with the long ridge pins--the bolts for them are too far towards the bottom and they bend/break off of the poles too easily.

They still beat the piece of junk toothpick brackets by quite a long shot though!

That makes sense considering most of the pin is half way past the lip of the pole. If they still have the blueprints for this bracket and consider using steel for longer brackets then maybe they ought to consider using them for 23kV vertical assembly or something!
