How It Works

Core drill a 2″ hole in or near the center of the piece to be removed (for balance), insert the Monkey Fist and lift the slab out. To recover the Monkey Fist just lift the release handle, remove and reuse.

User Manual

The Monkey Fist's forged heat treated components and zinc coated cam lever make it extremely durable for long lasting continual use.

When the tool is at rest, the diameter of the mandrel is slightly under 2". This allows easy insertion of the unit into the pre drilled hole.


When lift pressure is applied, it causes the grip rings of the patented two piece mandrel to expand. This allows the grip pressure to increase proportionately to the weight of the load.
