Rated 5 out of 5 by from bought based on review!! These are great and they prove the worth of leaving reviews!! 4 Stars on Value as they are not the cheapest around. They are easy to use on your own and i will be buying another set soon as somehow you always need more. The mechanism to raise and lock with the fine adjustment is solid and works a treat! I should have bought them ages ago no more using scrap wood to make something at site.

50kg each or per pair - I know its already been asked.

The two answers from Screwfix to two different questions seem to totally contradict each other. 1st states "The 50kg is in reference to the pair of supports", 2nd says "These extension rods can support 50KG each". Can't both be right.
Asked by: sdes
I've just purchased a pair of these. They each have a sticker on which says "Max. weight at 90 degree 50kg, at 45 degree 25kg". So I suggest they can support 50kg each, 100kg as a pair.

Is the max 50kg rated weight per rod, or per pair?

As above, max rated weight states "Max. weight at 90º: 50kg", is this per rod, or is each rod only rated to 25kg and the total rating for the pair is 50kg? Thanks
Asked by: GaryInCorby
Hello GaryInCorby, The 50kg is in reference to the pair of supports. Thank you for using Q and A.

Will these supports be suitable to support the weight of a pitched roof?

We need to support our pitched garage roof which is attached to the house as the outside wall of the garage appears to have moved by about an inch so the roof supports are no longer sitting on the supporting brick it should be resting on?
Asked by: KD23
Hello KD23, These extension rods can support 50KG each (at 90°) I can't comment on their ability to support your roof, sorry. Thanks for using Q&A
