Texas International Oilfield Tools (TIOT) offers “A” series center latch collar type elevators for handling drill pipe and casing. See Specifications table on page 5 for load capacity and size ranges. “A” series elevators should only be used with square shoulder tubular. The elevator is designed with two (2) halves of similar weights for good balance and easier opening and closing. Elevators are equipped with a latch and latch lock combination. To open, pull the latch lock handle out and swing the elevator apart. An extra handle at the rear of the elevator allows for easier, safer operation. The latch and latch lock secures automatically when the elevator is closed around the pipe.
Use the ears for lifting elevator – NOT the handles
