For over forty years Genuine Dura-Stilts® have remained the world wide, undisputed choice of professional stilt users.
Since the early sixties, the innovative key features pioneered and patented by Dura-Stilts established them as the industry leader of articulating leg extension devices (stilts). Dura-Stilts comfort, strength to weight ratio and reliability set new stilt standards which changed the construction industry’s perception of stilts from a novelty to a legitimate industrial tool.
Beware of Imitations Originating from China and Mexico
Once older patents began to expire, several marketers began importing numerous imitations of Genuine Dura-Stilts from China and Mexico under a variety of names. These imitations are usually touted as “the same as Genuine Dura-Stilts”, causing trusting buyer to become guinea pigs for unproven look-a-like stilts.
In addition, some suppliers have opted to carry the imitation imports for reasons of greater profit margins and are telling their customers Dura-Stilts are only available by special order. If you are a Dura-Stilts customer and have experienced difficulty in obtaining Dura-Stilts because your local dealer no longer stocks them, please feel free to contact us direct for your Dura-Stilts and parts needs.
Dura-Stilts are available in three options:
Only Dura-Stilts Pioneered Innovative Features Such As:
- Dual Action Springs
Upper and lower action springs along with their tension adjustment brought about precise control over both forward and rearward stilt walking actions, resulting in a close duplication of the user’s natural ankle movement. This new level of control brought easier balance, greater control, and less fatigue for the user. Properly adjusted, Dura-Stilts act more like an extension of the user’s natural stride and balance.
- Replaceable Nylon Bearings and Adjustment Sleeves
Replaceable bearing surfaces resulted in a noticeably smoother walk, smoother adjustment and dramatically extended stilt life over other brands.
- Lock Nuts
At all crucial pivot and connecting points for greater stilt reliability and safety.
- Self-locking Strap Buckles
For less slip and greater stilt safety. Dura-Stilts was also first to provide the added comfort of wider one-inch foot straps.
- Captive Lock Washers on Wing Bolts
Helps assure wing bolts remain tight once the user has properly tightened them for improved safety.
- Wing Bolts Extended Smooth Shank
Dramatically reduced adjustment hole wear of the extension tubes. Less adjustment hole wear means less wobble, greater stability and longevity.
- Replaceable Screw-on Soles
Greater ease in replacing worn soles to help maintain sole traction and walking comfort.
