Keytroller announces the release of its new Fork Protector for lift truck forks. This device simply clamps over the "heel" and "elbow" area of the fork to protect its bottom from excessive wear. It has a sacrificial steel alloy casting that wears in place of the fork. Typically, one pair of Fork Protectors eliminates the need to replace up to 10 pairs of forks.
The devices are easy to install on any internal combustion or electric forklift, according to the company. The combination of the side screws tightening and the casting's internal radius prevents slippage of the device. After one side of the sacrificial alloy wears out, the device can be simply turned around to wear the other side.
The protectors are available in 4-, 5- and 6-inch widths and come with a rubber bumper top connector (R model) or a low-profile metal top connector (M model).
