THE FUTURE IN INDUSTRIAL CRANE LIFTING & LOWERING

Quicker. Safer. Simpler.

A simpler, safer way to lift heavy objects thanks to a revolutionary self-aligning, lock, lift and simple release system. Stabilises the payload from one central point reducing keychains. More safety, less keychains and manpower = much more economic. Major companies around the world are now lifting their game. Leaders of industry, the bell has tolled.

Platycat Snatcher is an innovative patented product that was invented for the Water & Wastewater industry. Lifting pumps from confined spaces like sewer wells is recognised as a slow, costly, labour-intensive process involving some risk to the safety of field crew personnel.

Think Safe Act Safe

The Platycat Snatcher patented lifting system uses clever design and the universal laws of nature and physics, to produce a non-magnetic, non-electronic, semi-automatic, self-aligning, hands free, easy hook-up/release system to provide a new dimension for and set a new bench mark in workplace health and safety.

The Platycat Snatcher is a highly innovative safe lifting system that self-aligns and attaches to cranes, lifting arms, hiabs, jibs, easy arm cranes, hoists and more.

A NEW SAFETY INNOVATION FOR THE LIFTING INDUSTRY

Platycat Snatcher Lifting System

The Platycat Snatcher consists of two parts; a self-aligning bell-shaped hook and a matching tongue attached to whatever equipment you want to lift. The bell-shaped device uses the laws of physics to align itself with the matching tongue, without the need for hands or fingers going anywhere near the hook.

The Platycat Snatcher system can be designed and manufactured to suit any required workload limit.

How It Works

The Platycat Snatcher unit simply attaches to the lifting crane hook.

The Platycat Snatcher uses clever design and the universal laws of nature and physics, to produce a non-magnetic, non-electronic, semi-automatic, self-aligning, hands free, easy hook-up/release system to provide a new dimension for and set a new bench mark in workplace health and safety in Confined/Hazardous spaces.

  • future in lifting how it works illustrationSet up crane in normal position at pump station.
  • Lower Bell Lift unit towards pump.
  • When the Bell Lift contacts the lifting tongue on top of the pump, the unit will align itself to the lifting tongue and the unit will lock on to the pump.
  • Once you have connected and the area is safe, raise the pump out of the pump station.
  • future in lifting how it works illustrationThe Bell Lift is used to safely lower the pump. Because of its inbuilt safety features, there is no need to change the hook.
  • Lower the pump down the guide rails towards its normal operating position (pedestal). Importantly, the Bell Lift system still allows the operator to manipulate crane wire and manoeuvre the pump to ensure it is seated properly, thus minimising the likelihood of blowouts.
  • Once the operator is satisfied the pump is seated in its correct position, they can take the weight off the lifting mechanism.
  • Only when the weight is taken off will the Bell Lift allow the release mechanism to be activated.
  • Operate the release mechanism and raise the Bell Lift unit.

PlatycatSnatcher uses clever design and the laws of physics to produce a non-magnetic, non-electronic, self-aligning, hands-free, easy hook-up/release system to set a new benchmark in workplace health and safety in Confined/Hazardous spaces. The enhanced safety features of PlatycatSnatcher make it quick and simple to use and deliver significant cost-savings to the operator.

Any workplace which is potentially dangerous, difficult or toxic will benefit from this new system which keeps workers separated from hazardous situations. The unique design represents a breakthrough in lifting technology guaranteed to save your business time and money while delivering significant advances in safety. It is a safe, reliable, cost-effective way to handle your lifting jobs.
