Protective grounding devices might look indestructible, but they aren't. Like many live line tools, grounding equipment can become compromised through regular use, age, exposure to sharp objects, dirt, oils, petroleum-based products, environmental fluctuations, improper storage, abuse, and electrical arcing to name a few.
