Figure  2-9.—Terminal  down  guy. Figure 2-11.—Line guy, or storm guy. Figure 2-10.—Corner guy. b.  TERMINAL  DOWN  GUY.  As  shown  in figure 2-9, this type of guy is usually placed at the end of a pole line to counterbalance the pull of the line conductors. The terminal down guy can, at times, be called a corner  guy. c. CORNER GUY. The corner guy (fig. 2-10) is used where there is a directional change in the line. d.  LINE  GUY.  A  line  guy  is  installed  in  a straight pole line where an unusual stress or strain comes from farther down the pole line or where there is a chance  the  conductors  may  break  and  cause  excessive damage. Many times, line guys are installed in pairs, as shown in figure 2-11. A line guy is often called a storm guy. Figure 2-12.—Head guy. 2. HEAD GUY. A head guy runs from one pole to the next pole down the line. It is used to transfer the load supported by one line pole to another, as shown in figure 2-12. 3. PUSH BRACE. A push brace (fig. 2- 13) is used where a pole cannot be guyed and is too small to be self-sustaining. It is used in marshy or sandy soils where anchors cannot be firmly embedded. The upper end of the brace is bolted to the pole. 2-8
