The Skorpio is the perfect tool for timber framers and log home builders! Featuring all-steel and fully galvanized construction for weather resistance, ergonomic PVC handle with dual-action ratchet, and forged steel hooks. The Skorpio is quickly secured to beams, posts and other large and heavy timber components with a few hammer blows. When the job is finished, the innovative hook design allows removal with a single hammer blow to the back of the hook – no need to pry them out.
We’ve all been there: swinging a heavy commander over and over again, waiting for a tenon to seat all the way into its mortise. There’s no need to wear yourself out and beat up your timbers. And forget about moving the ladder back and forth to set up a come-along and all the required rigging.
Just pound in the Skorpio and let the ratchet pull it in. Your joints will be tighter, your timbers cleaner, and your body less sore.
- The perfect tool for the precise assembly of heavy timbers, solid wood panels, CLT panels, and more
- Hot-forged hooks with riveted joints and untempered stop point to prevent the risk of shards
- Also, a clamp specially made for the Skorpio can be purchased separately. The clamp will grab perforated straps (like the Simpson MTS or STHD) for pulling your posts or stair stringers tight. See page 3 of the technical sheet for more info and send us an email if interested.
