With Power Team Posi Lock®, pulling bearings is a one-person operation. The T-handle and “Safety Cage®” control the jaws at all times. This means that the opening, closing, locking and aligning of the jaws is all done automatically by simply turning the T- handle. The Posi Lock Pullers are offered in both mechanical and hydraulic versions.
