Lock-N-Load can be installed by one person and may be preloaded using a simple wrench that can be purchased with the unit. 2500 lbs (11kN) of preload can be applied. Lock-N-Load can be removed and reused by simply releasing the clamps. The prop must NOT be removed if under load.
Lock-N-Load can be packaged with conventional cap blocks and header boards. In addition, various steel fittings are available to tie into steel or wooden beams.
The Lock-N-Load Adjustable Support is a timber support prop used in place of steel jacks, water props or posts as either a temporary or permanent support. It can also be used as formwork for stoppings, seals, barricades, and ventilation curtains.
Lock-N-Loads are available in various lengths and also have 2 feet of adjustable length which eliminates the need for cutting or trimming. Lengths fit mining heights from three feet to fourteen feet with load bearing capacities of either five, eight or twenty tons.
