Rite-Hite's STR-4100 Dok-Lok Vehicle Restraint is designed to prevent injuries at the loading dock from trailer drop. It also helps to improve dock productivity, reduce product damage, and decrease dock equipment repair costs.
Trailer drop is a safety risk that can occur at virtually any loading dock and is often severe on trailers with air-ride suspension systems. Due to the weight of the lift truck and the load, the trailer bed can drop significantly when loading or unloading. This drop causes jolts to the operators, which can lead to chronic back and neck injuries. It can also damage product and dock equipment.
By securely stabilizing the trailer in both the vertical and horizontal directions, the STR-4100 restraint ensures a smooth transition between the dock and trailer. Additionally, the STR-4100 features Rite-Hite's rotating hook design that engages the trailer's rear impact guard in a twopoint entrapment and helps prevent all forms of trailer separation, which can lead to accidents.
The STR-4100 is designed to withstand impact and is automatically positioned as the truck approaches the dock.
