Lifting an object weighing over 150 kg with one Viking Arm may result in bent bars/base. Such use of the tool is not covered by our product warranty. You may remove bars/base and try to bend them back. If this doesn’t help, you can buy a replacement here. Please send us a message if you need to order spare parts.

While creaking can be really annoying it doesn’t affect the Viking Arm’s functionality. Actually, some craftsmen prefer to work with a “dry” tool. If you want to eliminate creaking, you may try to twist springs a bit first. If this doesn’t help, any quality technical lubricant will fix it.

It is important to maintain your Viking Arm regularly. This will help increase the service life as well as the performance.

Your Viking Arm should remain free of debris, sand, cement and dust, which can cause damage over a long time. It is well worth to spend a few minutes cleaning the tool compared to the cost of repairing or replacing it.

Cleaning the tool regularly is essential to their proper functioning. You can clean it by simply wiping all over with a rag. If the arm is dirty, do not hesitate to disassemble it, clean and lubricate all the parts properly. Please watch our Viking Arm Assembly video in the Manual & Tutorial section.

Lubricate your Viking Arm before you start using it and on a regular basis after that. Sprinkle metal parts  with a light coat of any good industrial lubrication oil.  Lubricating helps to improve performance of the tool, solve  occasional loss of functionality, reduce wear and tear of components and prevent corrosion.

Regularly inspect your Viking Arm for signs of damage and faulty functioning. Ensure that you repair your tool immediately if there is any damage.
