Light Duty Pivot Shore

per STL-P27

The Ellis Light Duty Pivot Shore is a patented adjustable structural support system with flat plate pivoting ends designed to support a load at an angle.  The Pivot Shore has the patented Ellis Lifting Nut assembly that dramatically reduces friction while adjusting the length of the shore under load.  Each end of the Ellis Pivot Shore has a pivoting flat plate that pivots 45 degrees in each direction.  These lifting shores can be used in temporary or permanent installations.

Product Overview

All Ellis Light Duty Steel Lifting Shores now come with the 4 lug lifting nut. Used the 3/4" Diameter Steel Adjustment Rod to lift loads.

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 standard Light Duty Steel Shores (w/o bearings).   Adjustable structural support column for temporary or permanent support with a patented nut housing tiny thrust bearings to allow for easier adjustment under load and jacking weight with significantly less force.  Add any length 3/4" Diameter Steel Adjustment Rod for extra leverage.

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 nut, and when tightened down locks the adjustment handle in place for permanent or long term shoring applications.

The top 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.

*All Load Capacities include a 2.5 to 1 Factor of Safety.
