In 1974, founder of Posi Lock Dean Somerville, realized a need for a self-aligning, universal puller that would remove gears and bearing safely and quickly. With his innovative spirit and mechanical background, Dean developed a new puller with a specialized safety cage. In 1978, Dean patented his design and named it the Posi Lock Puller.
Since then, Posi Lock Puller Inc. has established itself as the undisputed global leader in the industry for heavy weight pullers with an extensive inventory of hydraulic and manual models. In addition, we are the only puller on the market that locks on a failed bearing race. Our hydraulic line offers a pulling capacity from 5-200 tons while the manual pullers range from 1-40 tons of capacity. Contributing to our company’s 40+ years of success is our pullers award winning design: the safety cage allows for fast and safe set up by preventing slippage of the jaws, rolled bolt threads for maximum torque with minimal effort and forged tapered jaws to reach tight spots. These attributes make our pullers a one-man, safe and efficient operating tool.
Through the years, we have developed a range of specialized pullers catering to a variety of industries: Our transmission pullers were designed specifically for auto repair shops and offer specialized jaws to effectively grasp transmission bearings quickly. The Posi Lock hub pullers include specialized collars to fit a variety automotive and industrial fans and have become invaluable to the HVAC industry. In addition to pullers, we offer hydraulic bench vises, alignment tools and more. We are proud to hold an ISO 9002 certification and several patents. We are an innovative, family owned business located in Cooperstown North Dakota and strives to provide excellent, personalized service to distributors across the globe.
