The Jamb Skid is a a device for supporting sheaves or quadrant blocks inside a manhole to pull cable into the underground conduit.
By positioning the top of the jamb skid against the underside of the manhole opening and using the camlock foot pedal, set up can be done in fraction of the time it takes to install a hanging sheave assembly. Constructed of solid aluminum, the Jamb Skid is both strong and lightweight.
Pulling tension actually increases the stability of the Jamb Skid during the pull, and you will significantly reduce the risk of breaking chains or straps. The Jamb Skid is especially useful when there are no pulling irons, or when the existing irons do not line up properly with the duct. The Jamb Skid can be placed anywhere within a 360 degree radius inside the manhole.
Order base section and choice of extension separately for a complete Jamb Skid unit. Locking pins are included with the base section.
