Copperhead’s SnakePit Tracer Wire Test Station makes locating your underground utility easy! Secure it, cover it, and don’t worry about it.
SnakePit’s are ideal for using where there is not a logical point (such as hydrants or risers) to bring tracer wire to the surface for locators.
The SnakePit offers an insulated direct connection point for your locate transmitter that attaches easily to buried tracer wire. This makes connecting to and detecting buried tracer wire (and the pipe or cable it is following) accurate and convenient. An inbuilt magnet system makes finding the access point simple if buried. Anti-corrosion technology ensure Snakepits will last the life of the infrastructure. In addition a locking cover make them “vandal proof”.
