PROBLEM TO BE SOLVED: To provide a connecting hanger ear for electric overhead wire having a function for electrically connecting a hanging wire and a trolley wire, capable of reducing a number of components, and capable of facilitating handling such as mounting.
SOLUTION: The connecting hanger ear 1 equipped with a hanger bar 2 having a hook 2c for hooking the hanging wire M and an ear 3 for grasping the trolley wire T is provided with a clamp 4 for grasping the hanging wire M, a conductor 5 extending from the clamp 4, and a sleeve 6 for fixing the conductor 5 on the hanger bar 2. The trolley wire T is supported by the hanging wire M, and the trolley wire T is electrically connected to the hanging wire M through the conductor 5 and the hanger bar 2. By fixing the clamp 4 on the hanging wire M while play is maintained without stretching the conductor 5, the conductor 5 flexibly follows the hanger bar 2 even when the trolley wire T is pushed up by passing of a pantograph. Thus, the electric current can be supplied from the hanging wire M to the trolley wire T through the conductor 5 regardless of the quality of the electric connection state of the hook 2c to the hanging wire M.
