Weighing only 23 lbs., the Premium Sky Hooks with Tool Holder Base are the perfect lifting solution for lifting chucks, vises and large pieces onto lathes, mills, benches and other equipment. These Sky Hooks can lift and position heavy, awkward loads with a simple one-hand operation.
The dovetail style base is designed to quickly mount to the existing tool post on your lathe. With the addition of the optional bolt-down adapter, the Sky Hook can be easily mounted to any suitable flat surface including mill tables and benches. Be sure to check out the selection chart to determine the right Sky Hook Model # to fit your quick change tool post.
As part of the Premium Sky Hook product line, these models incorporate our popular LoadLock clutch brake mechanism. The clutch brake allows for easy-to-operate, secure lifting of up to 500 lbs. Unlike the friction brake found in the Economy Line Sky Hooks, the Premium LoadLock clutch brake does not require the operation of a lever to control the load’s rate of descent. With the LoadLock clutch brake, lowering the load is as easy as cranking the hand wheel in the counter clock-wise direction.
The Tool Post Mount Sky Hooks are available in both roller chain and cable configurations.
