The McKissick Quic-Kit is a mobile system designed to provide a customised replacement block within minutes of the crane going down.

The system can, says Certex, easily be configured to replace over 80% of overhead crane block applications. It covers wire rope diameters from 6.5mm to 26mm, and also has adjustable sheave spacing allowing the customer to match their exact requirements.

Supplied in a portable case, the kit contains all the tools necessary to carry out the replacement.

The kits are sold in 10 sizes allowing users to produce hundreds of variables of single and double sheave blocks. The 751 (single sheave) series has four different sizes with working load limits of 2, 3, 5, 7.5, and 10t; and the 752 (double sheave) series provides working load limits of 3, 5, 7.5, 10, and 15t.
