Step-by-Step Instructions for Using a Tip Lift with Paper, Film or Foil Rolls

Three Tilt Lock Tip Lift Models to Choose From: L1, L2 & L3

The spring-loaded Tip Lift probe is easily inserted into the center core of the material. Four gravity activated teeth on the probe’s end grip the core firmly.

This patented method assures the load cannot be disengaged from the probe while the load is suspended in air. This is an important safety feature. Once the probe is inserted in the roll, the load is tipped, lifted and moved to wherever it is needed. Once the roll material is moved to the space required, it can be easily lowered into position. Then, with just a squeeze of the handle grip, the probe’s grip on the core is released. All controls are operated by a finger controlled push button, making for ease of operation. Tip Lift can grip vertical and horizontal rolls with equal control.

(Note: Tip Lift cannot be released when the load is suspended in air).
