Independent Safety Lock
I-Lock™ is unlike anything currently available and is creating huge interest with machine makers and contractors. Not only does I-Lock™ satisfy the requirement to lock both pins, it goes much further by applying the safety lock instantly and from then on giving the operator independent control of the safety function. That is what makes I-Lock™ different from anything else in the market place and puts it into a different league as far as safety is concerned.
Tried and Tested
The I-Lock™ is tried and tested – it hasn’t been rushed through to comply with new standards. The design process started over 5 years ago and the first prototypes started testing in the US in 2006. There are hundreds of big I-Locks™ out there with 4000+ hours behind them.
I-Lock™ was launched in the UK in January 2009. “It took a while for word to get round, we expected that but the last couple of months have been amazing. I think users want to hear other users experience rather than believe the sales hype. We have a growing number of I-Lock™ users out there now and they are spreading the gospel. It’s great for us to be able to say there is nothing out there which compares and know that it’s right. Being able to offer the same hitch on machines from 100 tonnes right down to 2 tonnes is a huge advantage – users are realising that having the same system on all their machines, from mini’s right up to the top end, must be good for safety. Operators can switch from one machine to another and immediately operate the hitch correctly” – Steve Kidd, MD.
