I'm not at all certain this is even a wiring block; it could be a distribution block, a lightning arrestor, or some other wonderful piece of tech I still have yet to know about. I've been seeing devices like these hanging from aerial phone lines, mounted next to 66 blocks in businesses, and even outside of apartments. I'm led to believe it's nothing electrical in nature, it's probably just a distribution block. But I can't find a name for it (hell, even finding the picture of it took a few hours). I want to believe it's some sort of 66 block for larger gauge wiring (like the same gauge wire used in the provider side of most NIDs, the two pair cable that I also have no special name for), but I've never had a chance to open one. So, could anyone help me identify this device?
