Tilt-Lock’s remote center lifts provide a simple, safe and effective method of handling rolls with cores that are in the vertical position. We provide remote vertical center lifts that can fit 3-inch and 6-inch cores and are compatible with overhead chain hoists. Custom sizes are also available.

How does it work

Red Divider

Our remote center lifts work in much the same way as our standard vertical lifting equipment with one critical difference: They offer the flexibility of remote control functionality, allowing you to operate the device from a distance.

Center Lifts utilize gravity-activated teeth that grip the core to lift the roll. The operator cannot disengage the teeth until lowering the roll onto a stable surface, which is a valuable safety feature. Once the weight of the roll has been removed from the center lift, the teeth are locked in the retracted position by pressing the handheld button. The center lift may now be removed from the core.

Remote center lifts are typically used when operators are not able to reach the center lift because of the roll sizes or operation limitations.


Tilt-Lock’s remote center lifts are ideal for many industrial and manufacturing applications handling products that are too sensitive or heavy for traditional lifting processes, such as foil, paper, and film. Printing and paper production, packing and shrink wrap manufacturing and distribution, film and a variety of other industries can benefit from the use of remote center lifts in their day-to-day operations.


Our remote center lifts function the same as a standard center lift, but the tooth release is controlled with a push button.
