Tripod Operation

By upgrading our standard TeleCrib® Truck or Rescue Kit to a Tripod Kit, the struts can be used for both extrication and confined space rescue without requiring additional storage.

The TeleCrib® Tripod meets OSHA requirements for a 2-person anchorage, confined

space rescue tool.

>5,000 lb per anchor

>10,000 lb ultimate

Up to three high angle rescue systems can attach to the three anchor holes under the tripod head.

The TeleCrib® Strut DVD shows Tripod setup and operation in detail. To request a free instructional DVD, please contact Rescue 42, Inc. toll free at (888) 427-3728 or by e-mail at Rescue42@rescue42.com.

Tripod Operation

  • – WARNING –
  • Tripods are typically used in confined space rescue. Do not attempt to use a tripod unless you are trained in confined space rescue and have NFPA rated high angle rescue equipment to rig to the tripod.
  • Never use a tripod that is not stable. Use pickets, leg tie downs, and/or supplementary lateral head stabilization as needed to secure tripod.
  • Never use tripod without all pins installed in struts and tripod head.
  • Never use the tripod without the safety chain threaded through the tripod feet.

Tripod Operation

Tripod Setup:

To set up the tripod, first extend the blue sections from three long struts and remove the Combi-Heads.

Making sure that the struts are positioned so that the Baseplates are able to pivot toward the center of the tripod, slide the tripod legs into the tops of the blue tubes and pin with the tripod head pins. Simultaneously extend the three struts and place yellow pins in the top red and white section holes. Move the strut bases outward until they stop.

You may replace all or some of the Baseplates with Spikefeet if needed. The struts may be of different lengths to accommodate uneven surfaces, but should be sized so the tops of the inner tubes meet directly above or below the load.

Tripod Operation

Tripod Setup (cont.):

Attach your high angle rescue systems to the three anchor holes under the tripod head.

Add lateral stabilization to the three holes in the

tripod head top plate if needed to fully stabilize the tripod.

For additional stabilization, you

may drive pickets through

Baseplates (shown at right) and/or

use webbing to secure the

Baseplates or Spikefeet.
