Vehicle • Machinery • Aircraft • Light Structural

TeleCrib® struts are a lightweight, compact, telescoping stabilization tool designed for rescuer and patient safety during extrication.

Rescue 42 is the only rescue company to manufacture struts using DuPont Kevlar® infused composite material, making the TeleCrib® struts about half the weight of steel struts and 4X as strong.

 18,000 lbs Working Load

Most steel struts have a maximum working load of 4,000 lbs. The TeleCrib® struts have a max working load of 18,000 lbs with a greater than 2:1 safety factor. Because they are composite, they are nearly impervious to environmental or chemical corrosion, do not conduct electricity, and have exceptional impact resistance. If you need lifting capabilities, our removable Strut Jack fits on any TeleCrib® strut, turning it into an 8,000 lb ram.

Thousands of fire-rescue departments across the US and Canada trust TeleCrib® Struts to stabilize their most dangerous wrecks.

The Jack has a 15″ range, but can be used to raise or lower the entire extension of both strut sizes by pinning the strut and resetting the jack. Because it is removable, it can be moved from strut to strut as needed, minimizing storage requirements, cost and kit weight.
