Pelco’s cable retainer is ideal for new Roadway Lighting and Traffic Pole installations. Cables are locked in place. The metal guard around the cable makes cutting and accessing cable very difficult without the proper tools.

When using our standard 6" cable retainer in conjunction with a break away transformer base, a thief could remove the transformer base door and cut the cables below the cable retainer, thus leaving the cable between the poles unprotected. The cylinder will be mounted between the top of transformer base and the ground surface where the thief would be unable to cut the cables.

Pelco’s affordable, easy-to-install locking hand hole covers use a special tool to lock in place. These hand hole covers come in a variety of shapes and sizes. .

Pelco’s Transformer Base Doors are designed to help keep your copper/aluminum in Roadway Lighting and Traffic Pole Bases and out of the hands of thieves.

Copper Theft Has Tripled in the US over the Last 5 Years

In cities all across the United States and even the world, infrastructures have been plagued by a rash of copper theft. The reason is simple: thieves are renting bucket trucks and using large wire cutters to cut miles of copper cable and steal the lines, cutting off lights and darkening streets and neighborhoods. It's a dangerous vocation, killing some thieves and making municipalities more hazardous because the lights aren't available to keep streets and communities safe and well-lit.
