The "FOOTLOCK" bracing system you're manufacturing works great! With this bracing system we have cut our labor and materials cost at least in half over the wood planking methods we used in the past. The best part though, is that we now have a bracing system in place that we know is designed to handle the backfill pressures against the foundation. I highly recommend this system.

My crews are required to brace their own foundations after they strip the forms from the poured walls. The "FOOTLOCK" braces install quickly so my expensive equipment isn't tied up waiting to move to the next job.

I sometimes brace foundations myself when my laborers aren't available. "FOOTLOCK" braces easily transport in a pickup or van. These braces install so quickly we also have our excavators install them after they grade for the basement slabs.

"FOOTLOCK" bracing systems help my business in many ways. I can specify where I want the braces so critical areas are properly shored. The clear work area means safety on the job site. Reusability means I am able to save money and predict costs when bidding a new home.

We bought 20 "FOOTLOCK" braces to try them out on a few homes. On one particular home we ran out of "FOOTLOCK" braces after bracing half of a 60' long by 14 course high block wall so we shored the rest with 2x10 lumber. It rained a couple of inches overnight and when the carpenters showed up to start framing in the morning they found the wall had sheared off at the last "FOOTLOCK" brace and bowed in where the 2x10 lumber shoring was installed. We now own over 100 double "FOOTLOCK BRACING SYSTEMS".
