A hinged guard for use on distribution transformer bushings or other similar sized bushings. Three generous sized meshed cable ports provide plenty of cable orientation options. Positive latches provide permanent closure, but can be unlatched for guard removal. The height of this guard allows application on bare wire leads. Ribs on the sides of the guard enhance the ability to install live with insulated lineman gloves. Extensively tested, UV stabilized, high dielectric polypropylene copolymer provides superior durability and weather resistance.
