Paratech produces several different bases and heads for use on our struts in vehicle stabilization scenarios. From the all in one VSK Base 12 with it’s integrated spring return ratchet strap to our versatile Multi-Base, we have something to fit your needs. Paratech prides itself on simple, intuitive design, and that carries forward into our vehicle stabilization bases, finding the perfect blend of capability and ease of use.
All of our strut system heads and bases are milled from solid aircraft grade aluminum, never cast, to ensure reliable and uniform strength in every piece, then hard-coat anodized to maximize it’s strength and resistance to the elements.

The Dual Base is designed as a base plate for both the lift and the catch strut in a vehicle stabilization scenario, simplifying setup and reducing footprint. The Dual Base has two 45 degree swivel strut cups, each with a 5,000 lb WLL anchor ring, mounted to a quick action rotating mounting plates. The rotating mounting plates can be moved 360 degrees, and locked and unlocked with a simple quarter turn locking knob. The Dual Base itself is made from hard coat anodized aluminum for maximum durability. The base plate has holes for pickets, and concrete anchors.
The VSK Base 12 comes integrated with a spring tensioned automatic return ratchet belt to make setup and take-down extremely easy and minimizes trip hazards in the hot zone. It is outfitted with an anchor ring to attach a second ratchet belt or chain. The 12 in (30.5 cm) base comes with 4 picket holes and has two additional holes sized for concrete anchors.
The VSK Base 6 comes integrated with a spring tensioned automatic return ratchet belt to make setup and take-down extremely easy and minimizes trip hazards in the hot zone. It is outfitted with an anchor ring to attach a second ratchet belt or chain
Can be used as a V Base, Cone Base, Wedge Base and will accept a 3/8” chain. The central weight saving hole can also be used with a web shackle.
The Hinged Base 12 with Anchor Ring measures 12” x 12” (30,5cm x 30,5cm) and has a textured, aggressive ground contact surface. It includes an anchor ring to attach anchoring straps, ratchet belts or chains and a hinged connector that allows the clevis to move through a 90 degree range of motion to find the best angle for support. It has four holes along each side for securing the base to the ground with rebar or steel pickets, and one hole on each side to secure the hinged base plate to concrete using concrete anchors.
The Spike Base has replaceable stainless steel spikes that will dig into sheet metal, a V shape for cradling the load and a cone feature to dig into purchase points on a vehicle. The central hole can be used for a web shackle. The sticker comes with an angle indicator to gauge stabilization strut angle.
Designed to take both 3/8” (9.5mm) and 1/2” (12.7mm) either round or square chain, the Multi Chain Base means you don’t have to worry if you have the right size chain. The surface touching the vehicle has aggressive teeth to bite into the steel or aluminum panels and the stickers on either side make it easy to estimate strut angle.
The Contour base is C shaped to cup the load contact point, with aggressive teeth to bite into the material and maximize friction.
The Convex Multi Base is a multi–purpose vehicle stabilization base with a chain wedge for 3/8” chain, a V shape for cradling the load and cone feature to bite into purchase points on the vehicle.
The V Base has a 90° V that will fit onto any right angle. It features 2 nailing holes should it need to be nailed to a piece of wood used in other applications.
The Hinged Base 6 with Anchor Ring measures 6” x 6” (15 cm x 15 cm) and has a textured, aggressive ground contact surface. It includes an anchor ring to attach anchoring straps, ratchet belts or chains and a hinged connector that allows the clevis to move through a 90 degree range of motion to find the best angle for support.
