DESSA Tube Lifting Device (and auxiliary equipment) have been designed and developed to alleviate the need for tying knots when lifting or lowering (48.3mm outside diameter) scaffold tubes only, with gin wheels or handlines. Scaffold tube lifting devices provide ‘positive’ fixing to reduce risks associated with the vertical transfer of scaffold tubes during the erection, dismantling and modification of scaffolding structures.


  • Each constructed with two “half swivel” scaffold couplers connected to a central body, which in turn incorporates a lifting lug for the attachment of a gin wheel rope etc.
  • Scaffold tubes can then be securely clamped within the couplers to provide a positive connection when lifting/lowering.
  • All scaffold tube lifting devices are uniquely marked.
  • Each clamp will also have a unique designation/serial number.
