4 Essential Adjustment Tools for Slab Installation


Paver Pete discusses and demonstrates adjustment tools for slab installation. 



When you are laying slabs, we recommend pulling units from both sides of multiple pallets at a time.

We have some products that have a high tone distribution, and the right color mix should be obtained throughout the whole project.

A slab extractor can be used by two people to safely remove a unit and replace it with a lighter or darker unit, balancing the overall appearance of your project.

This tool is an adjustment bar designed to be inserted into a joint. It allows to you shift large sections of pavement to maintain joint alignment.

This hammer is equipped with an angled rubber head, designed to apply a low force on the units, protecting the bedding sand and avoiding rotation.

Sure is better than your boot!


This cutting tool provides the following advantages:

  • No noise. It can be run at 6 in the morning or 8 at night, no problem.
  • No dust, which complies perfectly to the new OSHA silica standard that went into effect in the United States on September 23rd, 2017. Click here for more information.
  • No safety concerns

Place the handle at 45 degrees, let the blade bite into the slab, apply some pressure to the handle to score and then split the unit.
