Lighter, Stronger Kevlar® Composite TeleCrib® Struts Save Lives
Vehicle • Machinery • Aircraft • Light Structural
4X as Strong as Steel Struts

TeleCrib® struts are a lightweight, compact, telescoping stabilization tool designed for rescuer and patient safety during extrication. Rescue 42 is the only rescue company to manufacture struts from a hi-tech Kevlar® composite material, making the TeleCrib® struts about half the weight of steel struts and 4X as strong. Most steel struts have a maximum working load of 4,000 lbs. The TeleCrib® struts have a max working load of 18,000 lbs with a greater than 2:1 safety factor. Because they are composite, they are nearly impervious to environmental or chemical corrosion, do not conduct electricity, and have exceptional impact resistance. If you need lifting capabilities, our removable Strut Jack fits on any TeleCrib® strut, turning it into an 8,000 lb ram.
