    • One door bushing is spring loaded with linkage connecting it to a locking pin. Any load on this bushing segment engages the pin preventing the elevator from opening. This safety lock prevents the elevator from opening under load.
    • The elevator is prepared for an interlock system when used with a power slip for tripping. 
    • The hydraulic cylinders are located inside the body for clean lines and maximum protection and they are still accessible for normal maintenance. 
    • Bushings can be changed within 5 minutes with no special tools and no loose nuts, bolts, or pins.
