Company Information

Lock-n-Lift LLC is the inventor and foremost expert for dovetail style steel plate lifting tools. This approach to lifting steel plates was conceived in the 1970’s by Fred Silva, who was working daily with heavy steel road plates. His first Lock-N-Lift tool was patented in 1981, and he immediately began selling this safe and reliable tool to the construction industry. He continued to improve his original design, resulting in additional patents for the current model #750 and #800 tools.

In 2009 Jon and Sally Rogers purchased the company, bringing a combined 60+ years of metal casting and business experience to benefit Lock-N-Lift LLC. The company is located in Carson City, Nevada. The Lock-N-Lift mission continues to be to make a dangerous job safer and easier. In addition to our industry standard patented dovetail style lifting tools, we have added lifting chain assemblies and Weld-in Plate Covers to our product line. Our tools are produced in the USA, and sold throughout North America, Australia and Great Britain.

With over 30 years of experience making industry-leading lifting tools, Lock-N-Lift LLC is committed to making YOUR job site safer.
