Manhole Hooks & Lifters

Most electricity, gas, water, telephone, and sewer lines and pipes are typically located within the confines of underground vaults. Whenever these utility lines need repairs or maintenance, those assigned to do the task cannot lift the extremely heavy covers of vault openings using muscular strength alone. This is why a manhole hook or a lifter is the most ideal tool to use when removing the covers of underground vaults.

With manhole hooks and lifters of varying lengths, designs, and hook ends here on Engineer Warehouse, there’s no need to look for others elsewhere. There are Tommy hooks with both beveled and turned shanks for standard and round openings. For manhole covers with simple round holes or bars, a snub nose hook is the best tool to use. Any kind of manhole cover or even lids of crates can be easily pried open by popper hooks and multipurpose hooks. There are also PFO hooks to lower or pull up the pump floats of lift stations and Rudy tools to remove cast-iron valve box covers and lids. Find the best ergonomically designed manhole cover hooks and lifters on our catalog and get the job done with ease.
