Blackthorn’s Magnetic Step Pin Assembly forms the holes necessary for installation of manhole steps.
Mounts magnetically to the form (also available with nail holes for use with non-magnetic forms).
Eliminates need to drill step holes after the structure has cured, saving you time & money!
Available for both FLAT WALL & ROUND WALL structures.
Using wire to tie hole-formers into the rebar cage can be laborious and unreliable. Drilling holes for coil or NC bolts damages your form walls. Magnets are by far the easiest and most reliable way to mount hole-formers to steel forms.
Hole-Former Magnets are interchangeable – simply use more magnets for larger hole-formers (SPEC SHEET)
No more floating hole-formers or “Swiss cheese” forms!
