Brief History

TrussLox Temporary Truss Bracing System is designed to secure roof trusses 24" on-center. 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!

For me, it's always been about more than just solving problems.

It's been about providing customers with building solutions that are safe, efficient, and economical.

 INCREDIBLE!!!! Saved 2 hrs from last set. Crane and man hours=$570 back in my pocket.

1 set paid for 1/2 the investment. We had 42 trusses to set. 2 of which were off set so there was some misc. bracing required, and we had an issue with the common wall trusses which stalled us a total of approx. 15 minutes. With the TrussLox we finished 2 hours faster than the previous set!! I'm building an Apartment building in Baudette, MN. 216' long. We have a tight estimated budget of $3,000.00 just for crane services. I am optimistically waiting to see the savings!

Best product I have ever used. This is not only a time saver but it literally took us 45 seconds to set 1 truss and release the cable and head to get another one..... can't really put a price on that kind production.
