The patented Ellis Thrust Bearings on the Light Duty Lifting Shores enable these shores to lift up to 10x the amount of load compared to the Light Duty Steel Shores (w/o bearings). Adjustable structural support column for temporary or permanent support with a patented wing nut housing tiny thrust bearings to allow for easier adjustment under load and jacking weight with significantly less force.
In the product animation below you will notice the thrust bearings inside the wing nut. The bearings greatly reduce the amount of friction when the Steel Shore with Roller Bearings - house jack handle is turned to adjust the height under load.
Unlike the Standard Steel Shore, these with Roller Bearings are built as one complete unit to aid in uplift resistance and do not come apart. Furthermore, we've added a "set screw" in the side of the wing nut, and when tightened down locks the adjustment handle in place for permanent or long term shoring applications.
The 6" x 6" top plate is attached with a clevis pin and interchangeable with different shapes and sizes. Click here to see a few of the different tops to choose from: STEEL SHORE TOPS.

*Steel Shores should be attached to a flat solid foundation. Steel Shores should not be subject to any lateral force. Steel Shore should be used to support straight vertical loads only. We recommend tightening set screw in the side of the wing nut with 6mm allen wrench prior to loading. Before construction begins it is recommended that you consult with a certified engineer for approval of our products within your application.
