The Manual Wheel-Lok from Rite-Hite provides simple operation and full-time, clear communication in a cost-effective, versatile design. The Manual Wheel-Lok also safely secures a variety of trailer types, such as lift gate trailers and trailers with damaged or missing rear impact guards.
Rite-Hite’s Manual Wheel-Lok is the only manual wheel-based restraint that provides full-time communication to dock personnel and the truck driver, which is just as critical to loading dock safety as the actual restraint itself. Without proper communication, accidents can still happen due to miscommunication.
Corner-Vu and Leveler-Vu, part of the Rite-Vu™ Light Communication System, enhance visual communication of the Wheel-Lok control box. As the forklift driver enters the trailer, Corner-Vu provides clear communication of the restraint status - free of any visual obstructions. When the forklift moves inside the trailer – where the driver is most at risk - Leveler-Vu confirms the restraint status. The Manual Wheel-Lok also offers interior and exterior LED lights and audible alarms as standard.
The Manual Wheel-Lok is easily positioned with minimal force and utilizes a 19-inch high barrier that resists in excess of 32,000 pounds of pullout force. In addition, wheel guides provide on-center trailer positioning and ensure dock seal effectiveness. The driver’s side wheel guide is optional.
The versatile Manual Wheel-Lok uses few moving parts for maximum reliability and virtually no maintenance. Its rugged design withstands all weather conditions and offers an optional cold weather package that includes a snow pole and slush guard for easy snow removal. Rite-Hite’s Manual Wheel-Lok is an alternative to the proven Global Wheel-Lok, which positions automatically.
