Lock & Load™

Lock and Load for Loading DocksThe NOVA Lock & Load Vehicle Restraint secures the trailer’s Rear Impact Guard (RIG) to reduce the risk of trailer separation accidents which lead to forklift driver injuries as well as damage to product and loading dock equipment. The Lock & Load offers unique features to improve on the proven performance of hook-style restraint designs:

  • Roller slope extension that effortlessly rolls on pavement.
  • Control box features discrete components for ease of service.
  • Control box includes keyswitch for override as standard.
  • LED lights are standard for energy efficiency and long life.
