Pit lid lifters for Telstra and communications pits

Different types of lid lifters and what they are used for

There are a range of different lid lifters on the market designed for opening, levering and moving manhole covers, telecommunications pit lids, and Gatic lids. These simple yet effective tools are used to crack stubborn seals and lift off the lids so that maintenance and minor works can take place.

Lid lifters are easy to use – simply engage them into the keyhole, use the locking nut to fix them in place, and then forcing the grate or pit lid open by turning the bolt towards the lid. We recommend you use lid lifters in pairs for safety and ease of lifting.

We’ve put together some information on the different types of pit tools and what they are used for.

Short or D handled lid lifter

These small but powerful powder coated lid lifters are suitable for use on light to medium Gatic manhole covers. They are used to break blocked dirt-filled seals and to lift smaller pit lids and grates. They should be used in conjunction with a long handled pit key.

Long handled lid lifter

These standard pit keys are used in pairs to break stubborn locked seals, and to lever up duty pit lids and grates.

Heavy Duty long handled lid lifter

A rugged, heavy duty lid lifter for opening different types of pits. This lid lifter should not be used to crack the seal; use the small D-Handle lifter instead.
