Manhole Lifters & Keys
Hydraulic Manhole Seal Breaker
The 1.5 ton hydraulic manhole seal breaker is simple, lightweight and designed so that the stuck cover will not end up causing back injuries.
Simply set the frame so that the bottle jack sits on the outer rim of the manhole with the other end on the cover. Then select the correct key size and attach it to the threaded tip holder. Place the key in position and have the threaded part of the bar come up through the frame. Put the wingnut on the frame plate and tighten the wingnut until the key is locked in place. Now pump the bottle jack and the cover will lift breaking the seal. Now normal manhole keys can be used to lift the cover.
The set comes with 8 screw in tips and weighs in at just 7kgs.
Didsbury Universal Cover Lifter
The Universal Cover Lifter uses all of the best ideas from the EZI-Lift Manhole Lifter. It uses the same bar to release the cover but has a wheeled frame making moving the cover much easier when on hard surfaces.
The Universal Cover Lifter uses Didsbury’s bar in conjunction with the lockable manhole keys and a large diameter bolt which is wound down to exert up to 4 tons of safe thrust to break the seal. This will free covers that have tarmac or concrete over the seal. There are also a range of different sized keys available so we can lift any cover you have. The BT version uses a ratchet and strop to lift the cover so that any sized operative can move the cover with ease.

Didsbury Companion Manhole Lifter
The Companion Manhole Lifter is simplicity at its very best, comprised of only 4 parts it is easy to use and will lift any manhole cover you can find. We’ve tried and we have not been able to find one so far that it will not.
The Companion lifter uses Didsbury’s bar in conjunction with the lockable manhole keys and a large diameter bolt which is wound down to exert up to 4 tons of safe thrust to break the seal.

Didsbury EZI-Lift Standard Lifter
The standard model with rigid handles is normally used in pairs where the keyholes are offset from the centreline (Elkington Gatic Covers). The lifter fits directly into the cover with no need for an adaptor bar or keys.
Gatic Cover Lifter
The Gatic Cover Lifter is designed to firstly split the seal of the cover and then be used as a set of four to lift the cover in conjunction with a machine.
If however they are to be used for manual lifts then they are simply used to break the cover seal and then the Ezi-Lift Standard set is used to pull the cover back.
Long Handled Multi Tip Manhole Key Pack
The long handled multi tip manhole key pack is designed so that you will always be able to lift your manhole cover no matter what the fitting.
The pack comes with 2 locking mechanism handles that can accept any of the cover key tips, screw threads or stocpcock keys. The tips are easily fitted by simply pulling back the knurled part of the fast fit mechanism and then inserting the tip so that face lines up with the internal cut out. The knurled part then springs back and locks the tip in place.
Each tip is rated for a 250kg lift with a safety factor of 4.
