Lyon Obelisk Quad-Pod


The Lyon Obelisk Quad-Pod is designed and manufactured by Lyon Equipment. The Obelisk (LPP0003) provides an elevated anchor point(s) for combined loads not exceeding 272kg (refer to User Instructions). It’s many features and configurations make it a flexible tool in a variety of situations.

Supplied with a 500mm top-beam, which provides a maximum width of 400mm at the cross-head. The adjustable width top-beam allows wider loads to be passed between the two pairs of legs.

The swivel feet enable use of either the flat foot or the spike, depending on the surface. The Obelisk can also be used with dissimilar leg lengths, if dictated by an undulating/uneven surface. However, the top-beam must always be level. The leg restraint straps must always be used as they are essential for the structural stability of the Obelisk.
