It is difficult to climb electric poles made of cement. Therefore, the innovator came up with a device to aid in climbing up electric poles of all types. The pole climber is made of a 16 mm steel rod, shaped into a square and bent suitably. Two such pieces are used in tandem by the climber. He has fixed leather sandals on this bent frame. The climber simply shoves his feet into the sandals and climbs the electric pole using this innovation as one climbs a staircase. It is easy to learn and provides comfort in climbing.
