In these challenging times, we here at Hydrajaws are determined to do what it takes to look after our customers, our staff and our friends. That is why, in light of further ongoing advice from the government, Hydrajaws are now closed until further notice.

We will still be monitoring emails and can respond, but no operational orders will be processed during this time.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation in these challenging times, but please keep safe and follow government advice.

Hydrajaws Portable Tension Testers

At Hydrajaws we develop, manufacture and sell a range of portable testers for testing the crucial holding force of anchors and fixings in construction materials.

For over thirty years our testers have been confirming the on-site safety of fixings in countries worldwide. With our extensive knowledge and expertise, we are regularly approached to provide solutions for a particular testing requirement.

Our wide range of testing models can confirm a wide variety of vital items including: anchors, material bond strength, adhesives and lifelines.

 We are proud to be members of Made in Britain

 Note: Our Model 2000 Tester kits have changed. This will affect the cost of previous kits and testers.
 For an up-to-date pricelist see our prices page or call. 


  The Model 2000 has evolved!

Our most popular tester has had an upgrade. It is still the same robust and portable model but with telescopic legs, new graphics and a new enhanced bridge design.

Anchor Pull Test Strength Testing
Testing the pull out strength of construction fixings is becoming an essential and legal part of health and safety in the building industry.

Hydrajaws has built and developed a range of Pull Test Equipment and Accessories to determine the reliability and load capacity of fixings including Pull Test Kit for Scaffold Anchors, Anchor bolt testers, Scaffold Tie Tester Kits, Safety Lifeline Testers, Material Bond Testers and Rebar Testers.

See our product page for the full range of Testers and Accessories or call Hydrajaws on +44(0)1675 430 370 for advice on your requirements.

There has been a major increase in the use of testers, particularly with local authorities who demand that a specific testing programme should be carried out on site by the contractor which is then endorsed by recorded evidence. 

It is therefore essential that all such site personnel should be thoroughly familiar with the use and understanding of testing equipment, especially if you have recently purchased a Pull Test Kit for Scaffold Anchors or any tester in our range. In this respect Hydrajaws offers an operator training scheme and issues certificates of competence which are recognised by local authorities and others in the industry.


Hydrajaws construction safety products, including scaffold safety equipment, used in conjunction with the Hydrajaws Bluetooth Digital System can provide reassurance and confidence in the building and erecting of scaffold systems.

See the original Hydrajaws M2000 Scaffold Tester for a specialist tester designed to ensure your scaffolding ONLY comes down when YOU want it to.

 Tester not working?  

It is rare for our testers to breakdown and most of the time the answer is an oil refil.
