pit lifter keys
Lifter Keys are designed to safely lift pit lids on/off pits and to lock swivel lock lids. Tri Underground stock two styles of pit lifter keys – one is a Fiberglass insulated Shaft LHFGM and the other is a Telstra style lifter. Other styles including short & long handle lifters are also available upon request.
Telstra Style Lifting Key: This pit lifter key is a metal, universal-style pit lifter that suits most lids including P1-P9, T60 & T100 pit lids.
Fibreglass Lifting Key: This pit lifter has a fibreglass shaft meaning it is non-conductive and safer for handling lids that have potentially exposed cabling beneath them.
