Has Your Stop Tap Box Lid or Manhole Cover Seized Up?

FT Pipeline’s locking replacement stop tap lids, meter boxes, sluice valves and hydrant covers save water companies thousands of pounds each year by not having to replace the entire chamber when a lid is damaged. Only one operative is required to install an FT Pipeline no dig lockable replacement lid on the first visit. However, what happens when you encounter a stubborn cover that has seized up? Our manhole lifting keys are the answer – the CoverUp key.

Whilst still ensuring safe lifting and manual handling techniques, any stuck lids or covers can now be raised without chiselling or hammering and without damaging the lid or frame. This new manhole lifting key provides a momentary upward force of 1.5 tonnes! Thanks to the 8kg weight and slide hammer action you are effectively hammering the lid up. It comes with a variety of tips in different sizes to suit just about any application meaning only one key is needed.

The new, improved key features non-slip, soft grip rubber handles and has extra handles for different heights and easier lifting whilst maintaining good posture. It is lightweight and also features multi-directional interchangeable tips meaning only one key is needed. The manhole lifting key is supplied with a compact accessory case for easy storage and transportation.

Take a look at the video to see how easy it is to use…

The CoverUp key will save you time – it lifts even the most wedged in lid without specialist tools and without having to attack it with a hammer and chisel or screwdriver. And it will help prevent back injuries – its upright position means the tool does the work.
