Pivoted Turnbuckle
Manhole Riser

Pivoted Turnbuckle


Takes a Beating

Quick and powerful expanding pivoted turnbuckle
for positive gripping power.

Riser Heights 
start at 3/4” and go up in 1/4” increments.

The Manhole Riser Rings come completely assembled and take 5 minutes to install.


Our Manhole Riser Rings come in a one piece assembly - no loose parts to lose.


The Manhole Riser Rings provide a flat surface for seating manhole covers.


The Manhole Riser Rings will not break from uneven seats or installation forces.


As shown here, our riser is remarkably durable and has tremendous staying power.


All of our Expandable Manhole Risers will accommodate a plus or minus 1/2 inch diameter change, giving an entire one inch diametric Manhole Riser variance

Our Expandable Manhole Riser, often referred to as Manhole Cover Lifters, Extension Rings, Paving Risers, Repaving Rings, Adjusting Rings or Riser Rings, have an unsurpassed reliability, track record, and performance.

The Manhole Cover Lifters are extremely durable, easy to install and provide a perfect fit in any situation.


1. Remove the Manhole Cover/Lid.








2. Remove all buildup on surfaces the Manhole Riser touches.








3. Expand linkage until the Manhole Riser is tight. That's it.

What's so Great about a Pivoted Turnbuckle?

TorqueOur Manhole Adjusting Riser Rings feature a turnbuckle linkage pivoted at each end to provide the ultimate means to expand a manhole riser.


This construction allows efficient application of a screw. A 60 lb. force applied 7'' from the center of the pivoted turnbuckle exerts a 5,600 lb. tangential force in the Manhole Adjusting Riser Rings that will be bent to fit the out of round, worn manhole opening.


Thus, the Manhole Adjusting Ring is forced out against the casting along the full circumference with this efficient pivoted turnbuckle mechanism. Thus, the installation resembles a pressed-in bearing. A very reliable, inexpensive means to bring manholes up to a new grade. All thanks to our Manhole Adjusting Riser Rings!
