The Ellis Steel Shores provide a quick, easy, and safe way to support structures. Available in heights of 3.25" to over 14' with safe load capacities of up to 80,000 lbs. the Ellis Steel Shores are a great solution for a wide range of applications.
Patented Thrust Bearing and Safety Lock
Found in the Light and Heavy Duty Steel Lifting Shores, this patented design greatly reduces the amount of friction caused when adjustment to the wing nut is made under load and significantly increases its jacking capability. Unlike the Standard Steel Shore, these with Bearings are built as one complete unit to aid in uplift resistance and do not come apart. Furthermore, we’ve added the Safety Lock 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 plate is attached with a clevis pin and interchangeable with different designed tops (see below).
