Default Concrete Cracks


If you are experiencing structural or concrete cracks in your home, I would look into Torque Lock Systems. Torque Locks Systems offers a very unique and interesting solution to common structural cracks in the home.

Through the use of "staples" they can stitch back a crack and apply 5000lb. of torque on adjacent sides of the crack, preventing it to expand.

They have an installation page on the web site to give you an idea of how it works. Check it out...

or just visit the home page and launch the install video.

Good luck!

Is that really strong enough for support beams?

Will this work on repairing foundations, or just outside support walls?
