When installing the roof sheeting, simply remove TrussLox Spread Bars, re-bundle with the TrussLox Carry Strap (included), store in your jobsite trailer to reuse on the next construction project.

Developed by Steve Ventling, a contractor/inventor since 1976, Steve was driven by necessity to find a device that would easily secure his building roof trusses in place. After using other temporary truss braces on the market, he realized the entire industry needed a better truss-bracing system. So Steve focused his efforts on creating a reliable, lightweight and durable tool that would easily brace trusses. After a long journey, Steve, along with his business partner Cynthia Hert, formed TrussLox LLC and their TrussLox Temporary Spreader Bar was awarded a coveted United States Patent!
