Thomas and Betts Lugs



Thomas and Betts Lugs are part of the Color-Keyed System providing consistent and reliable connections. Compression Lugs are manufactured of wrought copper that is electro-tin plated to prevent oxidation and corrosion. They are Color-Keyed to match colored bands on the installation dies to provide technicians with the assurance that they are crimping the T&B lug with the appropriate compression die. A die index number is noted on each lug for additional verification and to simplify inspection. Two-hole lugs work best for situations where two bolts are necessary to prevent lug rotation. One-hole lugs are for standard use. Long-barrel Thomas and Betts lugs are used for heavy-duty industrial applications which require more mechanical strength. Short-barrel lugs are used for standard applications and will work well in confined spaces.
