Apex X-Strut® Heavy-Duty Lifting Strut

  • The latest in Pin-Free Rescue

    The NEW Apex X-Strut® takes the popular, user-friendly design of our Auto X-Strut® and beefs it up for even more capability.  This well-rounded strut features the combination of a threaded inner tube and a square outer tube, allowing for a built-in ratchet on the standard strut, and an internal positive stop to eliminate the risk of over extension. The Apex accepts all pin-free end fittings on both the standard and short size strut.


    • The Apex X-Strut® comes standard with our Swivel CRG head fitting which gives you a variety of purchase point options and rotates 360° to easily find any purchase point.
    • Change head fittings in an instant with the pull of a single retaining pin.  Apex X-Strut® is compatible with our pin-free end fittings and other manufactures end fittings, so you can swap out with neighboring departments during mutual aid response.
    • Threaded inner tubing allows for fast and smooth adjustments without pins.  The unique design allows for a positive stop, keeping the inner tube from rotating under lighter loads, and eliminating the risk of over extension.
    • The Apex X-Strut® features the combination of a milled aluminum inner tube with a welded aluminum chassis for superior strength when shoring, stabilizing and lifting, without adding weight.
    • Quick release fittings detach in an instant, allowing you to add extensions for greater length, or swap out fittings from other manufacturers.
    • The Apex X-Strut® transforms from a shoring strut to a lifting strut in seconds with our removable mechanical Add-On Jack, giving you 6,000 lbs. of lifting capacity with 12 inches of travel.  Need to lift more than a foot?  Just remove the Add-On Jack and reset for 12 more inches of lift.
    • Comes with built-in ratchet strap (not available on short strut) with wire hooks, keeping your strap right where you need it.
    • Pivoting rings built into the base plate allow for fast attachment of straps, hooks and chains, or double as a picket receiver when anchoring is needed.


    Strut weight includes Swivel CRG Head Fitting, Base Plate, Ratchet Strap and all hardware.  Short Strut does not include Built-In Ratchet Strap.  Add-On Jack weight: 25 lbs.
