Vacuum Cups & Vacuum Lifters for Auto Glass Installation

When it comes to installing windshields and windows in a vehicle, nothing does it quite like the line-up of vacuum lifting products from Wood's Powr-Grip®. WPG pump-style vacuum cups put a handle where you need it on flat glass, curved glass, or any style of auto glass, while leaving the edges free for easy installation. These hand-held vacuum cups feature a choice of vacuum pads, to accommodate different sizes and shapes of glass, as well as sturdy handles that are ideally shaped for installing auto glass. Since safety is paramount in glass handling, Powr-Grip hand cups also come with the following safety features:

  • A red-line indicator or available Audio Alarm alerts the user of any significant vacuum loss.
  • A check valve allows repumping of the WPG vacuum cup without loss of the remaining vacuum.
  • A specially designed guard for the release lever helps prevent users from unintentionally releasing the glass.
  • Unlike regular suction cups, Powr-Grip vacuum cups achieve full contact with the glass surface, thus creating a much more reliable hold.
But what happens when the windshield gets big? We're talking really big, and really, really heavy... Fortunately, Wood's Powr-Grip offers the PT410AC, a below-the-hook vacuum lifter capable of handling all kinds of windshields, including bullet-resistant glass weighing up to 500 lbs [225 kg] and reaching thicknesses of 3 to 5 inches [7.6-12.7 cm]. So whatever size auto glass you are installing, Wood's Powr-Grip has a product to make your work easy!
