  • Tension relief and positioning of dock leveler hold-down assembly in the front and center of the leveler helps to provide a smoother ride for forklift drivers by keeping the leveler parallel with the trailer bed floor.
  • Reliable tooth engagement helps reduce operator injuries or damage to a leveler that were to pop into the air due to failure of a less reliable hold-down.
  • Helps reduce equipment downtime with longer-lasting parts and fewer required maintenance needs.
  • Dock leveler tension relief system helps protect the hold-down system and leveler subframe from damage and costly repairs for a longer product life by relieving upward pressure applied by rising trailer beds, especially in the trending use of air-ride suspension trailers.
  • Quality machined teeth to minimize premature chipping, allowing for easy tension relief and increased product life.
  • Corrosion resistant, 1-1/2" (40 mm) wide crown-toothed cadmium plated ratchet bar and 9-tooth pawl for strong holding power, longer life and less wear.
  • Universally accepted on most competitive and Rite-Hite mechanical levelers.
  • Rite-Hite provides an exclusive network of representatives and industry leading planned maintenance programs; helping ensure products are performing at their full potential.
