Tom's correct about the manufacturer. If you live near an electric utility
supply company they should have them in stock. I picked mine up in person at
Power Supply, Inc. in Houston -- an outfit that sells stuff to the public
utilities and refineries/plants in the area. Phone is (713) 674-3700. They
were $8.50 each about a year ago (I got type PG5718). The technical name
for them in the catalog is "guy guards/markers". Power Supply also has
offices in Austin and Beaumont, Texas, but don't think they are nationwide.
